## NCERT Solutions for Class 11 Maths Chapter 15 Statistics Exercise 15.3

1. From the data given below, which group is more variable, A or B ?

Marks | 10-20 | 20-30 | 30-40 | 40-50 | 50-60 | 60-70 | 70-80 |

Group A | 9 | 17 | 32 | 33 | 40 | 10 | 9 |

Group B | 10 | 20 | 30 | 25 | 43 | 15 | 7 |

Ans: First we have to find the standard deviation of group A.

Standard deviation of A is calculate as follows,

Marks | Group A \[\left( {{f_i}} \right)\] | Mid-point \[\left( {{x_i}} \right)\] | \[{y_i} = \dfrac{{{x_i} - 45}}{{10}}\] | \[{y_i}^2\] | \[{f_i}{y_i}\] | \[{f_i}{y_i}^2\] |

10-20 | 9 | 15 | \[ - 3\] | 9 | \[ - 27\] | 81 |

20-30 | 17 | 25 | \[ - 2\] | 4 | \[ - 34\] | 68 |

30-40 | 32 | 35 | \[ - 1\] | 1 | \[ - 32\] | 32 |

40-50 | 33 | 45 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 |

50-60 | 40 | 55 | 1 | 1 | 40 | 40 |

60-70 | 10 | 65 | 2 | 4 | 20 | 40 |

70-80 | 9 | 75 | 3 | 9 | 27 | 81 |

150 | \[ - 6\] | 342 |

Here,

\[h = 10\]

\[N = 150\]

\[A = 45\]

\[{\text{Mean = }}A + \dfrac{{\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{i = 7} {{x_i}{f_i}} }}{N} \times h\]

\[{\text{Mean = }}45 + \dfrac{{\left( { - 6} \right)}}{{150}} \times 10\]

\[{\text{Mean = }}45 - 0.4\]

\[{\text{Mean = }}44.6\]

Calculating standard deviation,

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{{{h^2}}}{{{N^2}}}\left[ {N\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{i = 7} {{x_i}{f_i}} - {{\left( {\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{i = 7} {{x_i}{f_i}} } \right)}^2}} \right]\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{{100}}{{22500}}\left[ {150 \times 342 - {{\left( { - 6} \right)}^2}} \right]\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{{225}}\left( {51264} \right)\]

\[\sigma = \sqrt {227.84}\]

\[\sigma = 15.09\]

\[\sigma = \sqrt {227.84}\]

\[\sigma = 15.09\]

Now we have to find the standard deviation of group B.

Standard deviation of B is calculate as follows,

Marks | Group A \[\left( {{f_i}} \right)\] | Mid-point \[\left( {{x_i}} \right)\] | \[{y_i} = \dfrac{{{x_1} - 45}}{{10}}\] | \[{y_i}^2\] | \[{f_i}{y_i}\] | \[{f_i}{y_i}^2\] |

10-20 | 10 | 15 | \[ - 3\] | 9 | \[ - 30\] | 90 |

20-30 | 20 | 25 | \[ - 2\] | 4 | \[ - 40\] | 80 |

30-40 | 30 | 35 | \[ - 1\] | 1 | \[ - 30\] | 30 |

40-50 | 25 | 45 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 |

50-60 | 43 | 55 | 1 | 1 | 43 | 43 |

60-70 | 15 | 65 | 2 | 4 | 30 | 60 |

70-80 | 7 | 75 | 3 | 9 | 21 | 63 |

150 | \[ - 6\] | 366 |

\[{\text{Mean = }}A + \dfrac{{\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{i = 7} {{x_i}{f_i}} }}{N} \times h\]

\[{\text{Mean = }}45 + \dfrac{{\left( { - 6} \right)}}{{150}} \times 10\]

\[{\text{Mean = }}45 - 0.4\]

\[{\text{Mean = }}44.6\]

Calculating standard deviation,

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{{{h^2}}}{{{N^2}}}\left[ {N\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{i = 7} {{x_i}{f_i}} - {{\left( {\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{i = 7} {{x_i}{f_i}} } \right)}^2}} \right]\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{{100}}{{22500}}\left[ {150 \times 366 - {{\left( { - 6} \right)}^2}} \right]\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{{225}}\left( {54846} \right)\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = 243.84\]

\[\sigma = \sqrt {243.84} \]

\[\sigma = 15.61\]

As the mean of both the groups is same, therefore, the group with greater standard deviation is more variable.

Therefore, group B is more variable.

2. From the prices of shares X and Y below, find out which is more stable.

X | 35 | 54 | 52 | 53 | 56 | 58 | 52 | 50 | 51 | 49 |

Y | 108 | 107 | 105 | 105 | 106 | 107 | 104 | 103 | 104 | 101 |

Ans: To compare the stability of both shares we have to calculate the standard deviation of both shares.

Coefficient of variance i.e. C.V. of share X can be calculated as,

The prices of shares X are,

\[35,54,52,53,56,58,52,50,51,49\]

Total number of observation is 10

Mean,

\[\overline x = \dfrac{1}{N}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{10} {{x_i}} \]

\[\overline x = \dfrac{1}{{10}} \times 510\]

\[\overline x = 51\]

\[{x_i}\] | \[\left( {{x_i} - \overline x } \right)\] | \[{\left( {{x_i} - \overline x } \right)^2}\] |

35 | \[ - 16\] | 256 |

54 | 3 | 9 |

52 | 1 | 1 |

53 | 2 | 4 |

56 | 5 | 25 |

58 | 7 | 49 |

52 | 1 | 1 |

50 | \[ - 1\] | 1 |

51 | 0 | 0 |

49 | \[ - 2\] | 4 |

350 |

Variance of shares of X can be calculated as,

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{N}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{10} {{{\left( {{x_i} - \overline x } \right)}^2}} \]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{{10}} \times 350\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = 35\]

\[\sigma = \sqrt {35} \]

\[\sigma = 5.91\]

\[C.V.{\text{ of shares X }} = \dfrac{\sigma }{{\overline x }} \times 100\]

\[C.V.{\text{ of shares X}} = \dfrac{{5.91}}{{51}} \times 100\]

\[C.V.{\text{ of shares X}} = 11.58\]

Coefficient of variance i.e. C.V. of share Y can be calculated as,

The prices of shares Y are,

\[108,107,105,105,106,107,104,103,104,101\]

Total number of observation is 10

Mean,

\[\overline x = \dfrac{1}{N}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{10} {{x_i}} \]

\[\overline x = \dfrac{1}{{10}} \times 1050\]

\[\overline x = 105\]

\[{y_i}\] | \[\left( {{y_i} - \overline y } \right)\] | \[{\left( {{y_i} - \overline y } \right)^2}\] |

108 | 3 | 9 |

107 | 2 | 4 |

105 | 0 | 0 |

105 | 0 | 0 |

106 | 1 | 1 |

107 | 2 | 4 |

104 | \[ - 1\] | 1 |

103 | \[ - 2\] | 4 |

104 | \[ - 1\] | 1 |

101 | \[ - 4\] | 16 |

40 |

Variance of shares of Y can be calculated as,

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{N}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{10} {{{\left( {{y_i} - \overline y } \right)}^2}} \]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{{10}} \times 40\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = 4\]

\[\sigma = \sqrt 4 \]

\[\sigma = 2\]

\[C.V.{\text{ of shares X }} = \dfrac{\sigma }{{\overline x }} \times 100\]

\[C.V.{\text{ of shares X}} = \dfrac{4}{{105}} \times 100\]

\[C.V.{\text{ of shares X}} = 1.9\]

On comparing the \[C.V.\] of both X and Y,

\[C.V.\]of X is greater than \[C.V.\] of Y.

Therefore, the price of Y is more stable than the price of X.

3. An analysis of monthly wages paid to workers in two firms A and B, belonging to the same industry, gives the following results:

Firm A | Firm B | |

No. of wages earners | 586 | 648 |

Mean of monthly wages | Rs. 5253 | Rs. 5253 |

Variance of the distribution of wages | 100 | 121 |

(i) which firm A or B pays larger amounts as monthly wages ?

Ans: Monthly wages of firm A is Rs. 5253.

Total number of wage earners in firm A is 586.

Therefore, total amount paid in firm A is \[{\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}5253 \times 586 = {\text{ Rs}}{\text{. }}3078258\] .

Monthly wages of firm B is Rs. 5253.

Total number of wage earners in firm B is 648.

Therefore, total amount paid in firm B is \[{\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}5253 \times 648 = {\text{ Rs}}{\text{. }}3403944\] .

Therefore, firm B pays a larger amount as monthly wages.

(ii) Which firm A or B, shows greater variability in individual wages ?

Ans: Variance of distribution \[\left( {{\sigma ^2}} \right)\] of wages of firm A is 100.

So, the standard deviation of the wages in firm A is

\[{\sigma ^2} = 100\]

\[\sigma = \sqrt {100} \]

\[\sigma = 10\]

Variance of distribution \[\left( {{\sigma ^2}} \right)\] of wages of firm B is 121.

So, the standard deviation of the wages in firm B is

\[{\sigma ^2} = 121\]

\[\sigma = \sqrt {121} \]

\[\sigma = 11\]

Since, the standard deviation of firm B is greater than firm B,

Therefore, firm B has greater variability in the individual wages.

4. The following is the record of goals scored by team A in a football session:

No. of goals scores | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |

No. of matches | 1 | 9 | 7 | 5 | 3 |

For team B, the mean number of goals scored per match was 2 with a standard deviation \[1.25\] goals. Find which team may be considered more consistent?

Ans: We have to compare team A and B, to see which team is more consistent.

For that we will calculate standard deviation of team A.

Calculation of Standard Deviation of Team A:

No. goals scored\[\left( {{x_i}} \right)\] | No of matches\[\left( {{f_i}} \right)\] | \[{f_i}{x_i}\] | \[{x_i}^2\] | \[{f_i}{x_i}^2\] |

0 | 1 | 0 | 0 | 0 |

1 | 9 | 9 | 1 | 9 |

2 | 7 | 14 | 4 | 28 |

3 | 5 | 15 | 9 | 45 |

4 | 3 | 12 | 16 | 48 |

25 | 130 |

Mean,

\[\overline x = \dfrac{1}{N}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{10} {{f_i}{x_i}} \]

\[\overline x = \dfrac{1}{{25}} \times 50\]

\[\overline x = 2\]

Standard deviation of A is,

\[\sigma = \dfrac{1}{N}\sqrt {N\sum {{x_i}{f_i}} - {{\left( {\sum {{x_i}{f_i}} } \right)}^2}} \]

\[\sigma = \dfrac{1}{{25}}\sqrt {25 \times 130 - {{\left( {50} \right)}^2}} \]

\[\sigma = \dfrac{1}{{25}}\sqrt {750} \]

\[\sigma = 1.09\]

Standard deviation of team A is \[1.09\] .

Standard deviation of team B is \[1.25\] .

Since the mean of both teams is the same i.e. 2.

Standard deviation of team B is greater than team A.

Therefore, team A is more consistent.

5. The sum and sum of squares corresponding to length x (in cm) and weight y (in gm) of 50 plant products are given below:

\[\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{x_i}} = 212,\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{x_i}^2} = 902.8,\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{y_i}} = 261,\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{y_i}^2} = 1457.6\]

Which is more varying, the length or weight?

Ans: Calculating standard deviation and coefficient of length.

\[\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{x_i}} = 212,\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{x_i}^2} = 902.8\]

Here, we have given that,

\[N = 50\]

Therefore, mean will be

\[\overline x = \dfrac{{\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{x_i}} }}{N}\]

\[\overline x = \dfrac{{212}}{{50}}\]

\[\overline x = 4.24\]

Now, calculating variance,

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{N}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{{\left( {{x_i} - \overline x } \right)}^2}} \]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{N}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {\left( {{x_i}^2 + {{\overline x }^2} - 2{x_i}.\overline x } \right)} \]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{N}\left( {\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{x_i}^2} + \sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{{\left( {\overline x } \right)}^2}} - \sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {2{x_i}.\overline x } } \right)\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{{50}}\left( {902.8 + 17.97 - 2 \times 4.24 \times 212} \right)\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{{50}}\left( {3.54} \right)\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = 0.07\]

\[\sigma = \sqrt {0.07} \]

\[\sigma = 0.26\]

So, the standard deviation of length is \[0.26\] .

\[{\text{C}}{\text{.V}}{\text{. = }}\dfrac{\sigma }{{\overline x }} \times 100\]

\[{\text{C}}{\text{.V}}{\text{. = }}\dfrac{{0.26}}{{4.24}} \times 100\]

\[{\text{C}}{\text{.V}}{\text{. = }}6.13\]

So, the coefficient of variance of length is \[6.13\] .

Calculating standard deviation and coefficient of variance of weigth.

\[\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{y_i}} = 261,\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{y_i}^2} = 1457.6\]

Here, we have given that,

\[N = 50\]

Therefore, mean will be

\[\overline y = \dfrac{{\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{y_i}} }}{N}\]

\[\overline y = \dfrac{{261}}{{50}}\]

\[\overline y = 5.22\]

Now, calculating variance,

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{N}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{{\left( {{y_i} - \overline y } \right)}^2}} \]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{N}\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {\left( {{y_i}^2 + {{\overline y }^2} - 2{y_i}.\overline y } \right)} \]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{N}\left( {\sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{y_i}^2} + \sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {{{\left( {\overline y } \right)}^2}} - \sum\limits_{i = 1}^{50} {2{y_i}.\overline y } } \right)\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{{50}}\left( {1457.6 + 27.24 - 2 \times 5.22 \times 261} \right)\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = \dfrac{1}{{50}}\left( {94.76} \right)\]

\[{\sigma ^2} = 1.89\]

\[\sigma = \sqrt {1.89} \]

\[\sigma = 1.37\]

So, the standard deviation of weight is \[1.37\] .

\[{\text{C}}{\text{.V}}{\text{. = }}\dfrac{\sigma }{{\overline y }} \times 100\]

\[{\text{C}}{\text{.V}}{\text{. = }}\dfrac{{1.37}}{{5.22}} \times 100\]

\[{\text{C}}{\text{.V}}{\text{. = 26}}{\text{.24}}\]

So, the coefficient of variance of weight is \[{\text{26}}{\text{.24}}\] .

Since the coefficient of variance of weight is greater than the coefficient of variance of length.

Therefore, weight varies more than length.
