**Question 6.The distances covered by 250 public transport buses in a day is shown in the following frequency distribution table. Find the median of the distances.Solution:**

Cumulative frequency which is just greater than (or equal) to 125 is 180.

∴ The median class is 220 – 230.

Now, L = 220, f = 80, cf = 100, h = 10

∴ The median of the distances is 223.13 km (approx.).

**Question 7.The prices of different articles and demand for them is shown in the following frequency distribution table. Find the median of the prices.Solution:**

Cumulative frequency which is just greater than (or equal) to 200 is 240.

∴ The median class is 20 – 40.

Now,L = 20, f = 100,cf = 140, h = 20

∴ The median of the prices of different articles is ₹ 32.
