1 Statistics Revision Sheet Question 6 of Paper The Statistics question is concerned mainly with the following terms. The Mean and the Median and are two ways of measuring the average. sumof values no. of values Median = Middle value Mode = Most common value Frequency Distribution Tables and Cumulative Distribution Tables are ways of displaying large amounts of data in a table form. Age of Entrants No. of People Inter-quartile Range measure the spread of the data. Inter-quartile Range = Q3 Q 1 The Histogram and the Cumulative frequency curve are graphs used to display data. Histogram Cumulative frequency curve 1

2 The Mean, Mode and Median Mean This is the average of a set of values and is found by getting the sum of the values and dividing by the number of values x n ( sumof values no. of values ) (sum of values means all the values added together) Mode This is the value that occurs most frequently Median this is the middle value when the values have been arranged in order from the lowest to the highest. If there are two middle values then the median is the average of these. Example Find the (i) mean, (ii) mode and (iii) median of the following set of numbers: 3, 3, 5, 6, 6, 4, 3, 7, 8, 9 sumof values (i) = 5. 4 no. of values We add up all the numbers (54) and divide it by the number of numbers, (10). (ii) Mode = 3 3 occurs three times, this is more than any other number. (iii) Median First line up the numbers from the lowest to the highest. 3, 3, 3, 4, 6, 6, 7, 8, 9 5, Median = There are two middle terms 5 and 6 We average these by adding together and dividing by Sometimes we will be given the mean and asked instead to find a missing value Example The mean of the numbers 4, 8, 6, x, 5 and 3 is 5. Find the value of x. sumof values no. of values x = x 5 3 5(6) = 5 Write down the formula and let it equal the mean, 5 Add the no. of values (including the x) and divide the no. of numbers, 6. Let it equal 5, the mean. Multiply across by 6 4 x 30 Simplify x 30 4 x s to one side, numbers to the other x = 4 Answer

3 Frequency Distribution This is a table, which summarises data showing how often each value occurs. To find the Mean of a frequency distribution we find the sum of the values multiplied by their frequency and divide this by the sum of the frequencies. fx f Sum of the values multiplied by their frequency Sum of the frequencies Example Below is a Frequency Distribution showing the marks obtained (out of 5) by 30 students in a class. Calculate the mean. (3 students got 0 marks, 7 students got 1 mark, 5 students got marks etc) Mark No. of Students fx f = (03) (1 7) (5) (3 6) (48) (51) = This gives the total marks This gives the total people Therefore the average score in the class was marks. The mode (most common) is 4 marks. 8 people got 4 marks. More people got 4 marks than any other mark. Example The mean of the following frequency distribution is 3. Calculate the value of x. Mark No. of Students x 5 4 fx f (01) (1 8) (1) (311) (4 x) (5 5) (6 4) = x x x 114 4x 3 41 x 114 4x 3(41 x) 114 4x 13 3x 4x 3x We sub values into the formula and let it = 3 Simplify x 9 Answer Multiply across by (41 + x) Simplify x s to one side, numbers to the other 3

4 Grouped Frequency Distributions A grouped frequency distribution shows the frequency of a range of values. Instead of having a heading for every score in a test from 1 to 30 we could group them into those who got 0 10 those who got 10 0 and those who got To find the mean we must first rewrite the table inserting a mid-interval value instead of a range of values. We then find the sum of the mid-interval values multiplied by their frequency all divided by the total number of values. Mid-interval Value If we have a group interval of 5 15, the mid interval would be We add the two values and divide by. Example The time taken for 0 students to run a race is given below. Calculate the mean. Time No. of people Rewrite the table using mid-interval values. Mid interval Time No. of people fx = f (133) (165) (198) ( 4) = minutes IF YOU GET ASKED A QUESTION ON WEIGHTED MEANS TREAT IT LIKE A FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION QUESTION. WEIGHTS ARE LIKE FREQUENCIES. 4

5 Histograms We use histograms to illustrate frequency distributions. It is similar to a bar chart though the widths of the bars MAY be different sizes. Make sure that the Histogram is well labelled. The variables (things being measured) go on the horizontal (x) axis. The frequencies (number of people usually) go on the vertical (y) axis. Just remember that the top of your table goes on the bottom of your graph. When the class intervals are equal the histogram is just like a bar chart. If the class intervals are unequal in measure the widths of the columns will change. Example of a Histogram where intervals are equal Age No. of people Age in Years The class intervals are equal (all 10 units wide) so the width of the columns remains equal across the histogram. 5

6 Example of a Histogram where intervals are unequal Minutes No. of People The class intervals are unequal and therefore we must adjust the widths of the columns. They will not be the same interval of interval of interval of interval of 30 The smallest interval is 10 so we use this as the unit base of our histogram. Interval of 10 = 1 unit wide Interval of 0 = Interval of 30 = units wide units wide The height of each interval is found by dividing the number of people in each interval by the amount of units wide each interval is as calculated above is 1 unit wide so 15 5 is 1 unit wide so 5 45 is units wide so is 3 units wide so Height = 10 Height = 50 Height = 40 Height = Time in Minutes 6

7 Using the Histogram to calculate the frequencies We will sometimes be given the histogram and asked to calculate the frequencies. A histogram is made up of columns (rectangles). We will be given the area of one of the rectangles and use this to calculate the others. Example Use the Histogram below to complete the frequency table. Age in Years No. of Pupils 0 We are given the 4 th rectangle (30 40) and told that the frequency is 0. Since we can see that its height is 0 in the graph and we are told that it is 0 in the table, the base is 1 unit wide. (the narrowest column is always 1 unit wide). The 1 st rectangle has base 1 and height 8 Frequency = 8 The nd rectangle has base 1 and height 16 Frequency = 16 The 3 rd rectangle has base 1 and height 4 Frequency = 4 The 4 th rectangle has base 1 and height 0 Frequency = 0 The 5 th rectangle has base and height 16 Frequency = x 16 = 3 The 6 th rectangle has base 4 and height 7 Frequency = 4 x 7 = 8 Age in Years No. of Pupils

8 Cumulative Frequency Curve/ Ogive A cumulative frequency table differs from a normal table in that we have a running total of the values as the intervals increase. We often use a normal frequency table to construct our cumulative frequency table. We do this by drawing the table again and adding the previous term each time to the frequency values. The cumulative frequency curve (ogive) is used to illustrate this data. The curve will always rise in this type of graph. We use the curve to estimate the median and inter-quartile ranges. To find the median, we go to the midway point of y axis draw a line across to hit our curve and bring this vertically down to read the value of the x axis. The inter-quartile range = Q 1 Q3 Q 1 is found by going a quarter of the way up the y axis, drawing a line across to hit our curve and bring this vertically down to read the value of the x axis. Q 3 is found by going a three quarters of the way up the y axis, drawing a line across to hit our curve and bring this vertically down to read the value of the x axis. Example Find the (i) Median, (ii) the Inter-quartile range and (iii) number of students who saved over 40 by drawing a cumulative frequency curve (ogive) of the following table. Amount saved No. of Students First construct the cumulative frequency table. Amount saved 10 0 No. of Students How? 10 (10+) (3+6) (58+16) (74+6) The points then for the curve are (10, 10), (0, 3), (30, 5), (40, 74) and (50, 80) 50 (i) Median we go up half way on the y- axis draw a line across then down to the x-axis. = 3 (ii) Q 1 =15 Q 3 =31 Inter-quartile = Q 3 Q 1 = = 16 (iii) Saved more than 40 Go to 40 on the x-axis, draw vertical line up to meet the curve and read across the value on the y-axis to get = 7 people saved more than 40 8
