# The following are the ages of 300 patients

Question:

The following are the ages of 300 patients getting medical treatment in a hospital on a particular day

Form

(i) less than type cumulative frequency distribution.

(ii) More than type cumulative frequency distribution.

Solution:

(i) We observe that the number of patients which take medical treatment in a hospital on a particular day less than 10 is O’. Similarly, less than 20

i

nclude the number of patients which take medical treatment from 0-10 as well as the number of patients which take medical treatment from 10-20.

So, the total number of patients less than 20 is 0 + 60 = 60, we say that the cumulative frequency of the class 10-20 is 60. Similarly, for other

class.

(ii) Also, we observe that all 300 patients which take medical treatment more than or equal to 10. Since, there are 60 patients which take medical

treatment in the interval 10-20, this means that there are 300 – 60 = 240 patients which take medical treatment more than or equal to 20.

Continuing in the same manner.
