Find the median. 112 35-39 2 Wages ( in Rs.) less than 100 less than 200 less than 300 less than 400 less than 500 less than 600 less than 700 less than 800 less than 900 less than 1000 Number of workers 5 12 20 32 40 45 52 60 68 75 Solution : We are given upper limit and less than cumulative frequencies. First find the class-intervals and the frequencies. Since the values are increasing by 100, hence the width of the class interval equal to 100. Class interval 0-100 100-200 200-300 300- 400 400-500 500-600 600-700 700-800 800-900 900-1000 f c.f 5 7 8 12 8 5 7 8 8 7 75 5 12 20 32 40 45 52 60 68 75 N 75 = = 37.5 2 2 113 N 2 −m Md = l + × c f 37.5 − 32 = 400 + × 100 = 400 + 68.75 = 468.75 8 Example 18: Find median for the data given below.
