Exercise 22.1

Question 1: What do you understand by the word “statistics” in:
(i) Singular form (ii) plural form?
Solution:
The term statistics is used in both its singular and plural forms.
(i) In singular sense, statistics can be characterised as science of processing, presentation, analysis and evaluation of numerical data.
(ii) Numbers in the plural refers to analytical data or measurements gathered for a specific purpose.
The word statistics is used in both its singular and plural senses.

Question 2: Describe some fundamental characteristics of statistics.
Solution:
The following are some of the most important characteristics:
(1) Statistics are gathered for a specific reason.
(2) Statistics are presented in quantitative terms rather than qualitative terms.
(3) Experiment statistics are similar and can be categorised into distinct categories.

Question 3: What are (i) primary data (ii) secondary data? Which of the two—the primary or the secondary data—is more reliable and why?
Solution:
(i) Primary data: Primary data is obtained when an investigator collects row data with a specific plan and without the use of existing sources.
(ii)Secondary data: Secondary data is information obtained from other published or unpublished sources.
Secondary data is information gathered by a person or an organisation for a specific purpose that is then used by someone else in a different way.
Primary data is accurate and valid since it is unique and is compiled by people or research organisations.

Question 4: Why do we group data?
Solution:
Raw data refers to information that has been collected in its natural state. It's impossible to extract information from raw data, and it can be perplexing at times. Data is clustered in order to make it more understandable and interpretable. Grouped data is useful for calculating specific values that will aid in the description and analysis of the data.

Question 5: Explain the meaning of the following terms:
(i) Variate
(ii) Class-interval
(iii) Class-size
(iv) Class-mark
(v) Frequency
(vi) Class limits
(vii) True class limits
Solution:
(i) Variate: Any character trait that differs from one individual to the next.
(ii) Class-interval: Class interval is the data of each group into which raw data is taken.
(iii) Class-size: The discrepancy between the higher and lower limits.
(iv) Class-mark: The chosen class's middle value. It can be calculated as:
Class-mark = ((Upper limit + Lower limit))/2
(v) Frequency: The total number of observations for each class.
(vi) Class limits: The class limits are two figures that define each class. The figures on the right side of the class are referred to as upper limits, while those on the left are referred to as lower limits.
(vii) True class limits:
In Inclusive class. For example: 10-19, 20-29, 30-39
True lower limit of class is – 0.5
True upper limit of class is + 0.5
True limits of the class 10 – 19 are 9.5 – 19.5,
True limits of the class 20 – 29 are 19.5 – 29.5
If exclusive class 20-30, 30-40, 40-50, then class limits and true class limits are the same.

Question 6:  The ages of ten students of a group are given below. The ages have been recorded in years and months:
8 – 6, 9 – 0, 8 – 4, 9 – 3, 7 – 8, 8 – 11, 8 – 7, 9 – 2, 7 – 10, 8 – 8

(iii) Determine the range?
Solution:
The ages of ten students of a group are:
8 – 6, 9 – 0, 8 – 4, 9 – 3, 7 – 8, 8 – 11, 8 – 7, 9 – 2, 7 – 10, 8 – 8.
(i) 7 years 8 months is lowest age.
(ii) 9 years 3 months is highest age.
(iii) Range = Highest – Lowest
Range = (9 years 3 months) – (7 years 8 months)
Range = 1 year 7 months

Question 7: The monthly pocket money of six friends is given below:
Rs. 45, Rs. 30, Rs. 40, Rs. 50, Rs. 25, Rs. 45.
(i) What is the highest pocket money?
(ii) What is the lowest pocket money?
(iii) What is the range?

Solution:
The monthly pocket money of six friends is given below:
Rs. 45, Rs. 30, Rs. 40, Rs. 50, Rs. 25, Rs. 45
(i) Highest pocket money = Rs. 50
(ii) Lowest pocket money = Rs. 25
(iii) Range = Highest – Lowest
Range = Rs. 50 – Rs. 25
Range = Rs. 25
(iv) Arrangement in Ascending order is: Rs. 25, Rs. 30, Rs. 40, Rs. 45, Rs. 45, Rs. 50.

Solution:
(i) 0 - 4, 5 - 9, 10 - 14
Inclusive Series = 0 - 4, 5 - 9, 10 – 14
Lower limit of class = – 0.5
Upper limit of class = + 0.5
Exclusive Series = - 0.5 - 4.5, 4.5 - 9.5, 9.5 - 14.5
Class size = 4.5 – (-0.5) = 5
Class size = 4.5 + 0.5
Class size = 5

(ii) 10-19, 20-29, 30-39
Inclusive Series = 10-19, 20-29, 30-39
Lower limit of class = – 0.5

Exclusive Series = 9.5 - 19.5, 19.5 - 29.5, 29.5 - 29.5
Class size = 19.5 - 9.5
Class size = 10

(iii) 100 - 120, 120 - 140, 160 - 180
Exclusive Series = 100 - 120, 120 - 140, 160 - 180
Class size = 120 – 100 = 20

(iv) 0 - 0.25, 0.25 - 00.50, 0.50 - 0.75
Exclusive Series = 0 - 0.25, 0.25 - 00.50, 0.50 - 0.75
Class size = 0.25 – 0
Class size = 0.25

(v) 5 - 5.01, 5.01 - 5.02, 5.02 - 5.03
Exclusive Series = 5 - 5.01, 5.01 - 5.02, 5.02 - 5.03
Class size = 5.01 – 5.0
Class size = 0.01.
