**Question 1.**

Find mode, using an empirical relation, when it is given that mean and median are 10.5 and 9.6 respectively.

**Solution:**

Mean = 10.5 and median = 9.6

Empirical relation: 3 Median = Mode + 2 Mean

3(9.6) = Mode + 2(10.5)

28.8 = Mode + 21

Mode = 28.8 – 21 = 7.8

Use Median Calculator. Enter the list of real numbers. separated by commas, check the data entered and then press “Calculate Median”.

**Question 2.**

**Question 6.**

The average score of boys in the examination of a school is 71 and that of the the girls is 73. The average score of the school in the examination is 71.8. Find the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls who appeared in the examination.

**Solution:**

Let number of boys in the school be x

Average score of boys = 71

Total score of boys in the examination of the school = 71xx = 71x

Let number of girls in the school be y

Average score of girls = 73

Total score of girls in the examination of the school = 73 x y = 73y

Now,

average score of the school in examination = 71.8
