Tutorial Example Construction of Frequency Distribution


Example Construction of Frequency Distribution


   


Construct a frequency distribution with suitable class interval size of marks obtained by students of a class are given below:
23, 50, 38, 42, 63, 75, 12, 33, 26, 39, 35, 47, 43, 52, 56, 59, 64, 77, 15, 21, 51, 54, 72, 68, 36, 65, 52, 60, 27, 34, 47, 48, 55, 58, 59, 62, 51, 48, 50, 41, 57, 65, 54, 43, 56, 44, 30, 46, 67, 53

Solution:
Arrange the marks in ascending order as
12, 15, 21, 23, 26, 27, 30, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, 39, 41, 42, 43, 43, 44, 46, 47, 47, 48, 48, 50, 50, 51, 51, 52, 52, 53, 54, 54, 55, 56, 56, 57, 58, 59, 59, 60, 62, 63, 64, 65, 65, 67, 68, 72, 75, 77
Minimum Value = Maximum =

Note: For finding the class boundaries, we take half of the difference between lower class limit of the 2nd class and upper class limit of the 1st class. This value is subtracted from lower class limit and added in upper class limit to get the required class boundaries.
