Q. 8

# From the following frequency distribution, prepare the 'more than' ogive.

Also, find the median.

Answer :

The frequency distribution table for ‘more than’ type is:

Lets plot a graph of ‘more than’ ogive, taking lower limits of the class intervals on x - axis and cumulative frequencies on y - axis.

As we have N = 230 by the frequency table.

N/2 = 230/2 = 115

Mark 115 on y - axis and the corresponding point on x - axis would be the median.

The corresponding point on x - axis is 590.

Hence, median is 590.
