## Chapter 24 - Measures of Central Tendency Exercise 24.21

Which one of the following is not a measure of central value?

(a) Mean

(b) Range

(c) Median

(d) Mode

Range is not a measure of central value.

The difference between the highest value and the lowest value in the data set is called Range.

Hence, correct option is (b).

## Chapter 24 - Measures of Central Tendency Exercise 24.22

The mean of a set of seven numbers is 81. If one of the numbers is discarded, the mean of the remaining numbers is 78. The value of discarded number is

(a) 98

(b) 99

(c) 100

(d) 101

For which set of numbers do the mean, median and mode all have the same value?

(a) 2, 2, 2, 2, 4

(b) 1, 3, 3, 3, 5

(c) 1, 1, 2, 5, 6

(d) 1, 1, 1, 2, 5

Mean | Median | Mode | |

2, 2, 2, 2, 4 | 12/5 = 2.4 | 2 | 2 |

1, 3, 3, 3, 5 | 15/5 = 3 | 3 | 3 |

1, 1, 2, 5, 6 | 15/5 = 3 | 2 | 1 |

1, 1, 1, 2, 5 | 10/5 = 2 | 1 | 1 |

From above table, data 1, 3, 3, 3, 5 has mean, median, mode all have same value, i.e. 3.

Hence, correct option is (b).

For the set of numbers 2, 2, 4, 5 and 12, which of the following statements is true?

(a) Mean = Median

(b) Mean > Mode

(c) Mean < Mode

(d) Mode = Median

If the arithmetic mean of 7, 5, 13, x and 9 is 10, then the value of x is

(a) 10

(b) 12

(c) 14

(d) 16

If the mean of five observations x, x + 2, x + 4, x + 6, x + 8, is 11, then the mean of first three observations is

(a) 9

(b) 11

(c) 13

(d) none of these

Mode is

(a) least frequent value

(b) middle most value

(c) most frequent value

(d) none of these

Most Frequent value is called mode.

Hence, correct option is (c).

The following is the data of wages per day: 5, 4, 7, 5, 8, 8, 8, 5, 7, 9, 5, 7, 9, 10, 8

(a) 0

(b) n - 1

(c) n

(d) n + 1

A, B, C are three sets of values of x:

A: 2, 3, 7, 1, 3, 2, 3

B: 7, 5, 9, 12, 5, 3, 8

C: 4, 4, 11, 7, 2, 3, 4

Which one of the following statements is correct?

(a) Mean of A = Mode of C

(b) Mean of C = Median of B

(c) Median of B = Mode of A

(d) Mean, Median and Mode of A are equal.

The empirical relation between mean, mode and median is

(a) Mode = 3 Median - 2 Mean

(b) Mode = 2 Median - 3 Mean

(c) Median = 3 Mode - 2 Mean

(d) Mean = 3 Median - 2 Mode

The empirical Relation between mean, median and mode is

Mode = 3 Median - 2 mean

Hence, correct option is (a).

The mean of a, b, c, d and e is 28. If the mean of a, c, and e is 24, what is the mean of b and d?

(a) 31

(b) 32
