## Worksheet on Statistics for Grades 9-12

### Solved Questions on Statistics

1. What is the mode of the given data set?

4, 4, 4, 9, 15, 15, 15, 4, 27, 37 and 48

a) 4
b) 9
c) 15
d) 27

Explanation: Mode is the data point that appears the most number of times in the given dataset.
So, the given set is 4, 4, 4, 9, 15, 15, 15, 4, 27, 37 and 48
Hence, here the number 4 is the mode of the data.

2. Find the mean of the following dataset: 8, 12, 5, 20, 15.

a) 8
b) 12
c) 16
d) 20

Explanation: Mean = (Sum of all values) / (Number of data points/observations)
= (8 + 12 + 5 + 20 + 15) / 5
= 60/5
= 12

3. The ages of five students in a class are 12, 14, 15, 13 and 16. What is the average age of the students?

a) 8
b) 12
c) 14
d) 20

Explanation:
Mean = (Sum of all values) / (Number of data points/observations)
= (12 + 14 + 15 + 13 + 16) / 5
= 70/5
= 14

The average age of the students is 14.

4. Calculate the median of the following dataset: 24, 26, 21, 28, 22, 29, 23.

a) 10
b) 12
c) 20
d) 24

Explanation: Arrange the data in ascending order:
21, 22, 23, 24, 26, 28, 29
n = 7
Median formula for an odd number of observations
= (n + 1)/2
= (7 + 1)/2
= 8/2
= 4th

In the given data 24 is in the 4th position. So, the median of the given data is 24

5. Find the median of the following dataset: 10, 9, 8, 12, 11, 7, 6, 13.

a) 10
b) 12
c) 14
d) 16

Explanation: Arrange the data in ascending order:
6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13
n = 8
Median formula for an even number of observations
= [(n/2)th + (n/2 + 1)th] / 2
= [(8/2)th + (8/2 + 1)th / 2
= (4th + 5th) / 2
= (9 + 10) / 2
= 19 / 2
= 9.5

So, the median of the given data is 9.5.
