Solved Question

Find the missing frequency of the group 20-30 when the median is 28.

Class IntervalFrequency


In this question median is given to us as 28, this means the median class is 20-30.

Rewrite the above table and find cf.

Class IntervalFrequencyCumulative Frequency
10-2085+8 = 13*
20-30*F1*13 + F1
30-401629 +F1
40-50635 + F1
35 + F1

Using the median formula;

We have a median, lower limit

28 = 20 + {(35+F1/2) – 13} X 10 / F1

28- 20 = {(35+F1/2) – 13} X 10 / F1

So, missing frequency is 15.
