Solution :

(a) How many babies weigh 3 kg or above?

= 63

(b) How many babies are underweight if 3 kg is considered as the optimum value?

= 13

(c) Find the ratio of the number of babies weighing 5 kg or more but less than 6 kg to the number of babies weighing 3 kg or more but less than 4 kg.

= Ratio

= 5 : 25

= 1 : 5

(d) What percentage of babies weigh 3 kg or more but less than 4 kg?

= Percentage

= (25/75 × 100)

= 33.33%

Question no – (7)

Solution :

From given data,

 Class Interval : Tally marks : Frequency : 20 – 30 |||| |||| |||| 14 30 – 40 |||| |||| | 11 40 – 50 |||| || 7 50 – 60 |||| || 7 60 – 70 | 1

(b) 20 – 30 years of age group

(c) 14 teachers.

= 37

= 37 girls are 155 cm or taller

Question no – (9)

Solution :

Smallest observation = 0

Highest observation = 20

Frequency distribution table,

 Class Interval : Tally marks : Frequency : 0 – 5 |||| 5 5 – 10 |||| |||| |||| 15 10 – 15 |||| |||| 9 15 – 20 |||| 4 20 – 25 |||| || 7

Question no – (10)

Solution :

Lowest = 45

Highest = 99

(99 – 45) = 54

Now, 54/5 = 10.8 ≅ 11

Frequency distribution table,

 Class Interval : Tally marks : Frequency : 40 – 50 | 1 50 – 60 ||| 3 60 – 70 ||| 3 70 – 80 |||| |||| | 11 80 – 90 |||| |||| | 11

Data Handling Exercise 16.2 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

According to the question the given data are,

 Subject : Marks : Hindi 65 Science 80 Social studies 55 English 70 Maths 90

Required pie chart is,

Question no – (2)

Solution :

Bike = 110

Scooter = 130

Car = 100

Bus = 80

Bicycle = 180
—————————————-
Total = 600

Here 600 – 3600

= 1 – 3600/600

Bike = 110 – 360 × 110/600

= 660

Scooter = 130 – 360 × 130/600

= 780

Car = 100 = 360 × 100/600

= 600

Bus = 80 – 360 × 80/600

= 480

Bicycle = 180 – 360 × 180/600

= 108

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Blue = 400,

Red = 250,

Yellow = 350,

Green = 200

Total Color,

= (400 + 250 + 350 + 200)

= 1200

Required pie chart :

Question no – (4)

Solution :

Total people = 10000

Travel in Bus,

= 10000/360 × 450

= 1250 people

Travel in Train,

= 10000/360 × 72

= 2000 people

∴ Travel in Taxi

= 10000/360 × 72

= 2000 people

∴ Travel in Bicycle,

= 10000/360 × 171

= 4750 people

Question no – (5)

Solution :

According to the pie chart,

(i) Drink Banana shake,

= 1500/360 × 144

= 600

= 1500/360 × 72

= 300

(iii) Drink Iced tea,

= 1500/360 × 24

= 100

(iv) Drink Orange juice,

= 1500/360 × 96

= 400

(v) Drink Milk shake,

= 1500/3600 × 24

= 100

(a) Banana shake

(b) Iced tea and Milk shake

(c) 600 children

(d) (300 – 100) = 200 children.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Total T-shirt sold = 10800

(i) T-shirt with size ‘XL’

= 10800/360 × 72

= 2160

(ii) T-shirt with size ‘M’

= 10800 /360 × 90

= 2700

(iii) T-shirt with size ‘L’

= 10800/360 × 108

= 3240

(iv) T-shirt with size ‘S’

= 10800/360 × 36

= 1080

(v) T-shirt with size ‘XXL’

= 10800/360 × 54

= 1620

(b) Difference,

= (2700 – 2160)

= 540

(c) ‘S’ size.

Data Handling Exercise 16.3 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(a) Tossing two coins at once

= Sample space

= {HH, HT, TH, TT}

(b) Tossing a coin 4 times

= Sample space

= {HHHH, HHHT,HHTH, HTHH, THHH, HHTT, HTHT, THTH, TTHH, HTTH, HTTT, THHT, THTT, TTHT, TTTH, TTTT}

(c) Spinning a spinner on a wheel containing five colours-red, green, orange, yellow and blue

= Sample Space

= {Red, Orange, Green, Yellow, Blue}

(d) Rolling two dice simultaneously,

= Sample Space = { (1, 1), (1,2), (1,3), (1,4), (1,5), (1,6), (2,1), (2,2), (2,3), (2,4), (2,5), (2,6), (3,1), (3,2), (3,3), (3,4), (3,5), (3,6), (4,1), (4,2), (4,3), (4,4), (4,5), (4,6), (5,1), (5,2), (5,3), (5,4), (5,5), (5,6), (6,1), (6,2), (6,3), (6,4), (6,5), (6,6).

Question no – (2)

Solution :

Probability,

= 4/52

= 1/13

Thus, the probability of drawing a king from a pack of playing cards is 1/13.

Question no – (4)

Solution :

As per the given question,

Obtaining a prime number from the numbers 1 to 50

Probability,

= 15/50

= 3/10

Therefore, the probability of obtaining a prime number will be 3/10.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

Probability of getting blue ball pen,

= 7/(7 + 5 + 12)

= 7/24

Probability of getting a red ball,

= 4/(7 + 4 + 12)

= 4/23

∴ Probability of not getting a red ball,

= (7 + 12)/23

= 19/23

Question no – (6)

Solution :

S = {HH, TT, HT, TH}

Probability of getting head both time,

= 1/4

Question no – (7)

Solution :

Total outcomes,

= (6 × 6)

= 36

Favorable outcomes,

= (1,6), (2,5), (3,4), (4,3), (5,2), (6,1)

= P(A) = 6/36

= 1/6

Question no – (8)

Solution :

Outcomes are,

= {(HHH), (HHT), (HTH), (THH), (TTT), (TTH), (THT), (HTT)}

Total = 8

= 4/8

= 1/2

Therefore, the probability of getting at least 2 heads will be 1/2.

Question no – (9)

Solution :

Here, n(s) = 36

Multiply of 3 = {(1, 2), (1,5), (2,1), (2,4), (3,3), (3,6), (4,2), (4,5), (5,1),(5,4), (6,3), (6,6)}

Total = 12

Probability,

= 12/36

= 1/3

Therefore, the probability of getting a sum as a multiple of 3 will be 1/3
