Calculation of variance of u:

Question 7.

Find the variance and S.D. of the following frequency distribution which gives the distribution of 200 plants according to their height.

Solution:

Since data is not continuous, we have to make it continuous.

Let u = \(\frac{x-\mathrm{A}}{\mathrm{h}}=\frac{x-31}{5}\)

Calculation of variance of u:

Question 8.

The mean of 5 observations is 4.8 and the variance is 6.56. If three of the five observations are 1, 3, and 8, find the other two observations.

Solution:

\(\bar{x}\) = 4.8, Var (X) = 6.56, n = 5, x_{1} = 1, x_{2} = 3, x_{3} = 8 ……(given)

Let the remaining two observations be x_{4} and x_{5}.

From (i), we get

x_{5} = 5 or x_{5} = 7

∴ The two numbers are 5 and 7.
