Problems on Cumulative-Frequency Curve

We will discuss here some of the problems on frequency polygon.

1. The monthly salaries of 55 workers of a factory are displayed in the following ogive.

Problems on Cumulative-Frequency Curve

Answer the following.

(i) How many workers have a monthly salary under $ 4000?

(ii) How many workers have a monthly salary more than or equal to $ 8000 but less than $ 10000?

(iii) Construct the frequency distribution table of the salaries of 55 workers.

Solution:

(i) 35. {Since the point on the ogive has the coordinates (4000, 35) corresponding to the point representing 4000 on the monthly salary axis.}

(ii) 10 (i.e., 55 – 45). {Since, according to the ogive, 55 workers have a salary less than $ 10000 and 45 workers have a salary less than $ 8000.}

(iii)

Monthly

Salary (in $)

Under

2000

Cumulative Frequency

(Number of Workers)


10


35


40


45


55

Therefore, the frequency distribution table of the salaries of 55 workers will be as below.

Monthly

Salary (in $)

0 - 2000

2000 - 4000

4000 - 6000

6000 - 8000

8000 - 10000

Number of Workers

10

25

2. Construct an ogive for the following distribution.

Problems on Cumulative-Frequency Curve Graph

Solution:

Here, the distribution is not continuous. Changing the intervals to overlapping intervals, we get the following cumulative-frequency table.

(Frequency)

Cumulative Frequency

-0.5 - 3.5

10

10

3.5 - 7.5

25

35

(= 10 + 25)

7.5 - 11.5 

15

50

(= 10 + 25 + 15)

11.5 - 15.5

5

55

(= 10 + 25 + 15 + 5)

15.5 - 19.5

1

56

(= 10 + 25 + 15 + 5 + 1)

Taking the upper limit of an interval and its corresponding cumulative frequency as x- and y-coordinates respectively, plot the points (3.5, 10)), (7.5, 35), (11.5, 50), (15.5, 55) and (19.5, 56).

Scale: On the x-axis, 1 cm = 4 hours.

          On the y-axis, 1 mm = 1 student
