Question 5 Mrs. Garg recorded the marks obtained by her students in the following table. She calculated the modal marks of the students of the class as 45. While printing the data, a blank was left. Find the missing frequency in the table given below
Let Missing frequency be x
Given Mode = 45
∴ Modal class is 40 − 50
Mode = l + (𝒇𝟏 −𝒇𝟎)/(𝟐𝒇𝟏 − 𝒇𝟎 − 𝒇𝟐) × h
where l = lower limit of modal class
h = class-interval
f1 = frequency of the modal class
f0 = frequency of the class before modal class
f2 = frequency of the class after modal class
Now,
Mode = l + (𝒇𝟏 −𝒇𝟎)/(𝟐𝒇𝟏 − 𝒇𝟎 − 𝒇𝟐) × h
45 = 40 + (𝑥 − 10)/(2𝑥 − 10 − 6) × 20
45 − 40 = (𝑥 − 10)/(2𝑥 −16) × 20
5 = (𝒙 − 𝟏𝟎)/(𝟐𝒙 −𝟏𝟔) × 20
5(2x − 16) = (x − 10) × 20
10x − 80 = 20x − 200
200 − 80 = 20x − 10x
120 = 10x
10x = 120
x = 120/10
x = 12
Hence, the missing frequency is 12
