The heights of 50 students, measured to the nearest centimeters, have been found to be as follows:-

161 | 150 | 154 | 165 | 168 | 161 | 154 | 162 | 150 | 151 |

162 | 164 | 171 | 165 | 158 | 154 | 156 | 172 | 160 | 170 |

153 | 159 | 161 | 170 | 162 | 165 | 166 | 168 | 165 | 164 |

154 | 152 | 153 | 156 | 158 | 162 | 160 | 161 | 173 | 166 |

161 | 159 | 162 | 167 | 168 | 159 | 158 | 153 | 154 | 159 |

(i) Represent the data given above by a grouped frequency distribution table, taking the class intervals as 160 - 165, 165 - 170, etc.

(ii) What can you conclude bout their heights from the table?

#### Solution

(i) A grouped frequency distribution table has to be constructed taking class intervals 160 − 165, 165 − 170, etc. By observing the data given above, the required table can be constructed as follows.

Height (in cm) |
Number of students (frequency) |

150 − 155 | 12 |

155 − 160 | 9 |

160− 165 | 14 |

165 − 170 | 10 |

170 − 175 | 5 |

Total | 50 |

(ii) It can be concluded that more than 50% of the students are shorter than 165 cm.
