Question 2:

The sum of deviations of a set of values , measured from is and the sum of deviations of the values from is . Find the value of and the mean

Answer:

We have

Subtracting (2) from (1) , we get

we get

Mean

Hence and mean

Question 3:

Prove that

Answer:

To prove algebraic sum of deviation from mean is zero

We have,

Now

Hence,

Question 4:

Compute the median from the following data

Compute the Median from the Following Data
Mid Value
Frequency

Answer:

Here, we are given the mid values. So, we should first find the upper and lower limits of the various classes. The difference between two consecutive values is

Lower limit of a class Midvalue

Upper limit

We have

The cumulative frequency first greater than N i.e.. is and the corresponding class is is the median class

Now,
