There are 10 observations arranged in ascending order as given below.

45,47,50,52, x, x + 2, 60,62,63,74. The median of these observations is 53.

Find the value of x. Also find the mean and the mode of the data.

Answer :

Here, n=10



So median = Mean of fifth and sixth observations.


5th term = x and 6th term = x + 2



2x=106-2


x=52





Mode is the most frequently occurring observation. Here 52 appears twice.


So, mode = 52.
