In worksheet on estimating median and the quartiles using ogive we will solve various types of practice questions on measures of central tendency. Here you will get 4 different types of questions on estimating median and the quartiles using ogive.

**1.** Using the data given below, construct the
cumulative-frequency table and draw an ogive. From the given determine the
median.

**2.** The table given below shows the monthly salary of some
employeed of a company, the lowest salary being $6,500.

(i) Use the table to to form its cumulative-frequency curve.

Take 2 cm = $ 500, starting the ogive at $6500 on the x-axis, and

2 cm = 10 employees on the y-axis.

(ii) Use the graph to write down the median salary in rupees.

Prepare a classified frequency distribution. Display it by an ogive and use it to find the median length of the sticks.

**4.** The following histogram displays a frequency
distribution.

Draw an ogive of the distribution and estimate the median.
