**Chapter 3 Data Handling Exercise 3.2**

Question 2.

The runs scored in a cricket match by 11 players is as follows:

6, 15, 120, 50, 100, 80, 10, 15, 8, 10, 15

Find the mean, mode and median of this data. Are the three same?

Solution:

Given data:

6, 15, 120, 50, 100, 80, 10, 15, 8, 10, 15

Arranging the given data in increasing order, we get

Question 4.

Find the mode and median of the data:

13, 16, 12, 14, 19, 12, 14, 13, 14

Solution:

Arranging the given data in increasing order, we get

Here, 14 occur 3 times (highest)

Thus, mode = 14

n = 9(odd)

= 5th term = 14

Hence, mode = 14 and median = 14.

Question 5.

Tell whether the statement is true or false.

(i) The mode is always one of the number in a data.

(ii) The mean is one of the numbers in a data.

(iii) The median is always one of the numbers in a data.

(iv) The data 6, 4, 3, 8, 9, 12, 13, 9 has mean 9.

Solution:

(i) True

(ii) False

(iii) True

(iv) False
