Find the median of the observation in the table given
  • A.
    11.5
  • B.
    12.5
  • C.
    14.0
  • D.
    14.5
Correct Answer: Option D
Explanation

Median = L1 + ((frac{Ef}{fm})) – fo
(frac{sum f}{2})
= (frac{20}{2})
= 10, L1 = 10.5, fo = 6, fm = 5
Median = 10.5 + (frac{(10 – 6)}{5})5
= 10.5 + 4
= 14.5
