1 9 Data Aalysis 9. Mea, Media, Mode ad Rage I Uit 8, you were lookig at ways of collectig ad represetig data. I this uit, you will go oe step further ad fid out how to calculate statistical quatities which summarise the importat characteristics of the data. The mea, media ad mode are three differet ways of describig the average. To fid the mea, add up all the umbers ad divide by the umber of umbers. To fid the media, place all the umbers i order ad select the middle umber. The mode is the umber which appears most ofte. The rage gives a idea of how the data are spread out ad is the differece betwee the smallest ad largest values. Worked Example Fid the mea the media the mode (d) the rage of this set of data. 5, 6,, 4, 7, 8, 3, 5, 6, 6 Solutio The mea is = 5 0 = 5.. To fid the media, place all the umbers i order., 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 7, 8 As there are two middle umbers i this example, 5 ad 6, media = 5+ 6 = = 55.. (d) From the list above it is easy to see that 6 appears more tha ay other umber, so mode = 6. The rage is the differece betwee the smallest ad largest umbers, i this case ad 8. So the rage is 8 6 =. 45
2 9. MEP Pupil Text 9 Worked Example Five people play golf ad at oe hole their scores are 3, 4, 4, 5, 7. For these scores, fid the mea the media the mode (d) the rage. Solutio The mea is = 3 5 = 46.. (d) The umbers are already i order ad the middle umber is 4. So The score 4 occurs most ofte, so, media = 4. mode = 4. The rage is the differece betwee the smallest ad largest umbers, i this case 3 ad 7, so rage = 7 3 = 4. Exercises. Fid the mea media, mode ad rage of each set of umbers below. 3, 4, 7, 3, 5,, 6, 0 8, 0,, 4, 7, 6, 5, 7, 9, 7, 8, 6, 7, 7, 4,, 5, 6, 7, 4, (d) 08, 99,,, 08 (e) 64, 66, 65, 6, 67, 6, 57 (f), 30,, 6, 4, 8, 6, 7.

The table shows how may complete parts they make i oe week. Worker Mo Tue Wed Thu Fri Fred 0 0 Harry Fid the mea ad rage for Fred ad Harry. Who is most cosistet? Who makes the most parts i a week? 5. A gardeer buys 0 packets of seeds from two differet compaies. Each pack cotais 0 seeds ad he records the umber of plats which grow from each pack. Compay A Compay B (d) Fid the mea, media ad mode for each compay's seeds. Which compay does the mode suggest is best? Which compay does the mea suggest is best? Fid the rage for each compay's seeds. 6. Adria takes four tests ad scores the followig marks. 65, 7, 58, 77 What are his media ad mea scores? If he scores 70 i his ext test, does his mea score icrease or decrease? Fid his ew mea score. Which has icreased most, his mea score or his media score? 7. Richard keeps a record of the umber of fish he catches over a umber of fishig trips. His records are:, 0,, 0, 0, 0,, 0,, 0, 0,, 8, 0,, 0,.

A similar survey was take i 960. I 960 the rage i the umber of childre per family was 7 ad the mea was.7. Describe two chages that have occurred i the umber of childre per family sice 960. (SEG) 9.3 Calculatios with the Mea This sectio cosiders calculatios cocered with the mea, which is usually take to be the most importat measure of the average of a set of data. Worked Example The mea of a sample of 6 umbers is 3.. A extra value of 3.9 is icluded i the sample. What is the ew mea? 55
12 9.3 MEP Pupil Text 9 Solutio Worked Example Total of origial umbers = 6 3. = 9. New total = = 3. New mea = 3. 7 = 33. The mea umber of a set of 5 umbers is.7. What extra umber must be added to brig the mea up to 3.? Solutio Total of the origial umbers = 5. 7 = Total of the ew umbers = 6 3. = So the extra umber is 5.. Differece = = 5. Exercises.

The mea salary of the 8 people who work for a small compay is Whe a extra worker is take o this mea drops to How much does the ew worker ear? 56
13 8. The mea of 6 umbers is.3. Whe a extra umber is added, the mea chages to.9. What is the extra umber? 9. Whe 5 is added to a set of 3 umbers the mea icreases to 4.6. What was the mea of the origial 3 umbers? 0. Three umbers have a mea of 64. Whe a fourth umber is icluded the mea is doubled. What is the fourth umber? 9.4 Mea, Media ad Mode for Grouped Data The mea ad media ca be estimated from tables of grouped data. The class iterval which cotais the most values is kow as the modal class. Worked Example The table below gives data o the heights, i cm, of 5 childre. Class Iterval 40 h < h < h < h < 80 Frequecy Estimate the mea height. Estimate the media height. Fid the modal class. Solutio To estimate the mea, the midpoit of each iterval should be used. Class Iterval Midpoit Frequecy Midpoit Frequecy 40 h < = h < = h < = h < = 400 Totals 5 85 Mea = 85 5 = 6 (to the earest cm) The media is the 6th value. I this case it lies i the 60 h < 70 class iterval. The 4th value i the iterval is eeded. It is estimated as = 6 (to the earest cm) The modal class is 60 h < 70 as it cotais the most values. 57
14 9.4 MEP Pupil Text 9 Also ote that whe we speak of someoe by age, say 8, the the perso could be ay age from 8 years 0 days up to 8 years 364 days (365 i a leap year!). You will see how this is tackled i the followig example. Worked Example The age of childre i a primary school were recorded i the table below. Age Frequecy Estimate the mea. Estimate the media. Fid the modal age. Solutio To estimate the mea, we must use the midpoit of each iterval; so, for example for '5 6', which really meas 5 age < 7, the midpoit is take as 6. Class Iterval Midpoit Frequecy Midpoit Frequecy = = = 380 Totals Mea = = 8. (to decimal place) The media is give by the 54th value, which we have to estimate. There are 9 values i the first iterval, so we eed to estimate the 5th value i the secod iterval. As there are 40 values i the secod iterval, the media is estimated as beig 5 40 of the way alog the secod iterval. This has width 9 7 = years, so the media is estimated by 5 40 = 5. from the start of the iterval. Therefore the media is estimated as = 8. 5 years. The modal age is the 7 8 age group. 58
15 Worked Example uses what are called cotiuous data, sice height ca be of ay value. (Other examples of cotiuous data are weight, temperature, area, volume ad time.) The ext example uses discrete data, that is, data which ca take oly a particular value, such as the itegers,, 3, 4,... i this case. The calculatios for mea ad mode are ot affected but estimatio of the media requires replacig the discrete grouped data with a approximate cotiuous iterval. Worked Example 3 The umber of days that childre were missig from school due to sickess i oe year was recorded. Number of days off sick Frequecy Estimate the mea Estimate the media. Fid the modal class. Solutio The estimate is made by assumig that all the values i a class iterval are equal to the midpoit of the class iterval. Class Iterval Midpoit Frequecy Midpoit Frequecy = = = = = 69 Totals Mea = = days. As there are 40 pupils, we eed to cosider the mea of the 0th ad st values. These both lie i the 6 0 class iterval, which is really the class iterval, so this iterval cotais the media. As there are values i the first class iterval, the media is foud by cosiderig the 8th ad 9th values of the secod iterval. As there are values i the secod iterval, the media is estimated as beig of the way alog the secod iterval
16 9.4 MEP Pupil Text 9 But the legth of the secod iterval is = 5, so the media is estimated by = 386. from the start of this iterval. Therefore the media is estimated as = The modal class is 5, as this class cotais the most etries. Exercises. A door to door salesma keeps a record of the umber of homes he visits each day. Homes visited Frequecy Estimate the mea umber of homes visited. Estimate the media. What is the modal class?. The weights of a umber of studets were recorded i kg. Mea (kg) 30 w < w < w < w < w < 55 Frequecy Estimate the mea weight. Estimate the media. What is the modal class? 3. A stopwatch was used to fid the time that it took a group of childre to ru 00 m. Time (secods) 0 t < 5 5 t < 0 0 t < 5 5 t < 30 Frequecy Is the media i the modal class? Estimate the mea. Estimate the media. (d) Is the media greater or less tha the mea? 4. The distaces that childre i a year group travelled to school is recorded. Distace (km) 0 d < d < d < d < 0. Frequecy Does the modal class cotai the media? Estimate the media ad the mea. Which is the largest, the media or the mea? 60
17 5. The ages of the childre at a youth camp are summarised i the table below. Age (years) Frequecy Estimate the mea age of the childre. 6. The legths of a umber of leaves collected for a project are recorded. Legth (cm) Frequecy Estimate the mea the media legth of a leaf. 7. The table shows how may ights people sped at a campsite. Number of ights Frequecy Estimate the mea. Estimate the media. What is the modal class? 8. A teacher otes the umber of correct aswers give by a class o a multiplechoice test.

Correct aswers Frequecy (i) Estimate the mea. (ii) Estimate the media. (iii) What is the modal class? How do the results for the two classes compare? Iformatio A quartile is oe of 3 values (lower quartile, media ad upper quartile) which divides data ito 4 equal groups. A percetile is oe of 99 values which divides data ito 00 equal groups. The lower quartile correspods to the 5th percetile. The media correspods to the 50th percetile. The upper quartile correspods to the 75th percetile. 6

Draw a histogram to represet your distributio i part. (MEG) 63
20 9.5 Cumulative Frequecy Cumulative frequecies are useful if more detailed iformatio is required about a set of data. I particular, they ca be used to fid the media ad iterquartile rage. The iterquartile rage cotais the middle 50% of the sample ad describes how spread out the data are. This is illustrated i Example. Worked Example For the data give i the table, draw up a cumulative frequecy table ad the draw a cumulative frequecy graph. Solutio The table below shows how to calculate the cumulative frequecies. Height (cm) Frequecy 90 < h < h 0 0 < h < h < h < h 50 6 Height (cm) Frequecy Cumulative Frequecy 90 < h < h = 7 0 < h = 57 0 < h = < h = < h = A graph ca the be plotted usig poits as show below (50,) (40,06) q y Cumulative Frequecy (0,57) (30,88) 40 0 (0,7) 0 (90,0) (00,5) Height (cm) 64
21 Note A more accurate graph is foud by drawig a smooth curve through the poits, rather tha usig straight lie segmets (50,) (40,06) Cumulative Frequecy (0,57) (30,88) 40 0 (0,7) Worked Example (90,0) (00,5) Height (cm) The cumulative frequecy graph below gives the results of 0 studets o a test Cumulative Frequecy Test Score 65
22 9.5 MEP Pupil Text 9 Use the graph to fid: the media score, the iterquartile rage, the mark which was attaied by oly 0% of the studets, (d) the umber of studets who scored more tha 75 o the test. Solutio Sice of 0 is 60, the media ca be foud by startig at 60 o the vertical scale, movig horizotally to the graph lie ad the movig vertically dow to meet the horizotal scale. I this case the media is 53. Cumulative Frequecy Start at Score Media = To fid out the iterquartile rage, we must cosider the middle 50% of the studets. To fid the lower quartile, start at of 0, which is This gives Lower Quartile = 43. To fid the upper quartile, start at 3 of 0, which is This gives Upper Quartile = 67. The iterquartile rage is the Cumulative Frequecy Upper quartile = Lower quartile = 43 Test Score Iter  quartile Rage = Upper Quartile Lower Quartile = = 4. 66
23 Cumulative Frequecy Here the mark which was attaied by the top 0% is required. 0%of 0 = so start at 08 o the cumulative frequecy scale. This gives a mark of Test Score (d) To fid the umber of studets who scored more tha 75, start at 75 o the horizotal axis This gives a cumulative frequecy of 03. Cumulative Frequecy 60 So the umber of studets with a score greater tha 75 is 0 03 = 7. As i Worked Example, a more accurate estimate for the media ad iterquartile rage is obtaied if you draw a smooth curve through the data poits. Exercises. Make a cumulative frequecy table for each set of data give below. The draw a cumulative frequecy graph ad use it to fid the media ad iterquartile rage Test Score 75 Joh weighed each apple i a large box. His results are give i this table.
