### Measures of Central Tendency Exercise 24A – Selina Concise Mathematics Class 10 ICSE Solutions

**Question 1.**

Find the mean of the following set of numbers:

(i) 6, 9, 11, 12 and 7

(ii) 11, 14, 23, 26, 10, 12, 18 and 6

**Solution:**

**Question 2.**

Marks obtained (in mathematics) by 9 student are given below:

60, 67, 52, 76, 50, 51, 74, 45 and 56

(a) find the arithmetic mean

(b) if marks of each student be increased by 4; what will be the new value of arithmetic mean.

**Solution:**

**Question 3.**

Find the mean of the natural numbers from 3 to 12.

**Solution:**

**Question 4.**

(a) Find the mean of 7, 11, 6, 5, and 6

(b) If each number given in (a) is diminished by 2, find the new value of mean.

**Solution:**

**Question 5.**

If the mean of 6, 4, 7, ‘a’ and 10 is 8. Find the value of ‘a’

**Solution:**

No. of terms = 5

Mean = 8

Sum of numbers = 8 x 5 = 40 .(i)

But, sum of numbers = 6+4+7+a+10 = 27+a ..(ii)

From (i) and (ii)

27+a = 40

a = 13

**Question 6.**

The mean of the number 6, ‘y’, 7, ‘x’ and 14 is 8. Express ‘y’ in terms of ‘x’.

**Solution:**

No. of terms = 5 and mean = 8

Sum of numbers = 5 x 8 = 40 ..(i)

but sum of numbers = 6+y+7+x+14 = 27+y+x .(ii)

from (i) and (ii)

27 + y + x = 40

x + y = 13

y = 13 – x

**Question 7.**

**Solution:**

**Question 8.**

If 69.5 is the mean of 72, 70, ‘x’, 62, 50, 71, 90, 64, 58 and 82, find the value of ‘x’.

**Solution:**

No. of terms = 10

Mean = 69.5

Sum of the numbers = 69.5 x 10 = 695 ……….(i)

But sum of numbers = 72+70+x+62+ 50+71+90+64+58+82

= 619 + x ……(ii)

from (i) and (ii)

619 + x = 695

x = 76

### Measures of Central Tendency Exercise 24D – Selina Concise Mathematics Class 10 ICSE Solutions

**Question 1.**

Find the mode of the following data:

(i) 7, 9, 8, 7, 7, 6, 8, 10, 7 and 6

(ii) 9, 11, 8, 11, 16, 9, 11, 5, 3, 11, 17 and 8

**Solution:**

(i) Mode = 7

Since 7 occurs 4 times

(ii) Mode = 11

Since it occurs 4 times

**Question 2.**
