The table below shows the number of hours put in per week by workers of a certain factory;
Number of
hours (๐ฅ)
6-10 11-15 16-20 21-25 26-30 31-35 36-40 41-45 46-50
Frequency (๐ฆ) 2 4 8 11 16 5 2 1 1
(a) Calculate, to the nearest hour, the mean and standard deviation of the distribution. (5 marks)
(b) Draw a cumulative frequency curve for the data. From your curve, estimate the median hour of the
distribution (5 marks)
(c) Estimate, also, correct to two decimal places, the percentage of workers who put in between 30 to 40 hours of
work per week (3 marks)
