Question 9 Statistics - Exercise 14.3

100 surnames were randomly picked up from a local telephone directory and a frequency distribution of the

number of letters in the English alphabet in the surnames was found as follows: (i) Draw a histogram to depict the given information.

(ii) Write the class interval in which the maximum number of surnames lie.

(i) The width of the class intervals in the given data is varying.

We know that,

the area of the rectangle is proportional to the frequencies in the histogram.

Thus, the proportion of the number of surnames per 2 letters interval can be calculated as given in the table

below. (ii) 6-8 is the class interval in which the maximum number of surnames lie.
