#### Question 1:

The following table shows the number of saplings planted by 30 students. Fill in the boxes and find the average number of saplings planted by each student.

No. of saplings (Scores) x _{i} |
No. of students (frequncy) f _{i} |
f_{i}×x_{i} |

1 | 4 | 4 |

2 | 6 | $\overline{){0}}$ |

3 | 12 | $\overline{){0}}$ |

4 | 8 | $\overline{){0}}$ |

N = $\overline{){0}}$ | ∑f_{i}x_{i}=$\overline{){0}}$ |

Mean $\overline{)x}$ = $\frac{\overline{){0}}}{N}$

= $\overline{){0}}$

∴ The average number of trees planted $\overline{){0}}$

#### Answer:

No. of saplings (Scores) x _{i} |
No. of students (frequncy) f _{i} |
f_{i}×x_{i} |

1 | 4 | 4 |

2 | 6 | = 2 $\times $ 6 = $\overline{)12}$ |

3 | 12 | = 3 $\times $ 12 = $\overline{)36}$ |

4 | 8 | = 4 $\times $ 8 = $\overline{)32}$ |

N = $\overline{)30}$ | ∑f_{i}x_{i}=$\overline{)84}$ |

Mean $\overline{)x}$ = $\frac{\overline{){\displaystyle \sum _{}{f}_{i}{x}_{x}}}}{N}$

= $\overline{)2.8}$

∴ The average number of trees planted $\overline{)2.8}$

#### Question 2:

The following table shows the electricity (in units) used by 25 families of Eklara village in a month of May. Complete the table and answer the following questions.

Electricity used (units) x _{i} |
No. of Families (frequency) f _{i} |

30 | 7 | ....... |

45 | 2 | ....... |

60 | 8 | ....... |

75 | 5 | ....... |

90 | 3 | ....... |

N = ....... | ∑f_{i}x_{i} =....... |

(2) State the score, the frequency of which is 5.

(3) Find N, and ∑f

_{i}x

_{i }

(4) Find the mean of electricity used by each family in the month of May.

#### Answer:

The following table shows the electricity (in units) used by 25 families of Eklara village in a month of May. Complete the table and answer the following questions.

Electricity used (units) x _{i} |
No. of Families (frequency) f _{i} |
f_{i}×x_{i} |

30 | 7 | 30 × 7 = 210 |

45 | 2 | 45 × 2 = 90 |

60 | 8 | 60 × 8 = 480 |

75 | 5 | 75 × 5 = 375 |

90 | 3 | 90 × 3 = 270 |

N = 25 |
∑f_{i}x_{i} = 1425 |

(1) 2 families use 45 units electricity.

(2) The score with a frequency of 5 is 75.

(3) N = 25, and ∑f

_{i}x

_{i}= 1425

(4) Since,

$\mathrm{Mean}=\frac{{\displaystyle \sum _{}}{f}_{i}{x}_{i}}{N}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\frac{1425}{25}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=57$

So, the mean of electricity used by each family in the month of May is 57.

#### Question 3:

The number of members in the 40 families in Bhilar are as follows:

1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 7, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 4, 6, 2, 3, 2, 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 3, 4, 5, 2, 4, 3, 2, 3, 5, 5, 4, 6, 2, 3, 5, 6, 4, 2. Prepare a frequency table and find the mean of members of 40 families.

#### Answer:

Number of members (x)_{i} |
Number of families (f)_{i} |
f_{i}x_{i} |

1 | 2 | 2 |

2 | 8 | 16 |

3 | 7 | 21 |

4 | 8 | 32 |

5 | 7 | 35 |

6 | 6 | 36 |

7 | 2 | 14 |

N = 40 | $\sum _{}$f = 156_{i}x_{i} |

Since, mean = $\frac{\sum _{}{f}_{i}{x}_{i}}{N}=\frac{156}{40}=3.9$

So, the mean of members of 40 families is 3.9.

#### Question 4:

The number of Science and Mathematics projects submitted by Model high school, Nandpur in last 20 years at the state level science exibition is:

2 3 4 1 2 3 1 5 4 2 3 1 3 5 4 3 2 2 3 2. Prepare a frequency table and find the mean of the data.

#### Answer:

The frequency table of the data is follows:

Number of projects (x)_{i} |
Frequency (f)_{i} |
f_{i}x_{i} |

1 | 3 | 1 $\times $ 3 = 3 |

2 | 6 | 2 $\times $ 6 = 12 |

3 | 6 | 3 $\times $ 6 = 18 |

4 | 3 | 4 $\times $ 3 = 12 |

5 | 2 | 5 $\times $ 2 = 10 |

N = 20 |
$\sum _{}{f}_{i}{x}_{i}$ = 55 |

Hence, the mean of the data is 2.75.

#### Question 1:

Observe the following graph and answer the question.

(1) State the type of the graph.

(2) How much is the savings of Vaishali in the month of April?

(3) How much is the total savings of Saroj in the months March and April?

(4) How much more is the total savings of Savita than the total savings of Megha?

(5) Whose savings in the month of April is the least?

#### Answer:

(1) This is a bar graph.

(2) The savings of Vaishali in the month of April is Rs 600.

(3) The total savings of Saroj in the months March and April is Rs 800.

(4) Since, the total savings of Savita = Rs 1000, and

The total savings of Megha = Rs 500

Now, 1000 $-$ 500 = 500

So, the total savings of Savita is Rs 500 more than the total savings of Megha.

(5) The savings of Megha in the month of April is the least i.e. Rs 200.

#### Question 1:

Show the following information by percentage bar graph.

Division of standard 8 | A | B | C | D |

Number of students securring grade A | 45 | 33 | 10 | 15 |

Total number of students | 60 | 55 | 40 | 75 |

#### Answer:

We have,

The following information:

Division of standard 8 | A | B | C | D |

Number of students securring grade A | 45 | 33 | 10 | 15 |

Total number of students | 60 | 55 | 40 | 75 |

#### Question 2:

Observe the following graph and answer the questions.

(1) State the type of the bar graph.

(2) How much percent is the Tur production to total production in Ajita'a farm?

(3) Compare the production of Gram in the farms of Yash and Ravi and state whose percentage of production is more and by how much?

(4) Whose percentage production fo Tur is the least?

(5) State production percentages of Tur and gram in Sudha's farm

#### Answer:

(1) This is a percentage bar graph.

(2) The Tur production is 60% of the total production in Ajita'a farm.

(3) The production of gram in the farm of Yash is 50%, whereas

The production of gram in the farm of Ravi is 30%.

Since, 50 $-$ 30 = 20

So, the production of Gram in the farms of Yash is more than that of Yash by 20%.

(4) The production fo Tur in the farm of Sudha is the least, i.e. 40%.

(5) The production percentages of Tur and gram in Sudha's farm are 40% and 60%, repectively.
