**ANSWERS:**

1. Data

2. Statistics

3. Class marks

4. Mean

5. Median

6. Mode

7. 9 (9 occurs most frequently)

8. 53

Explanation: (x + 57)/2 = 55

x + 57 = 2 x 55 = 110

x = 110 – 57 = 53

9. 15

Explanation: (5 + 7 + 8 + 10 + x) / 5 = 9

30 + x = 45

x = 45 – 30 = 15

10. 3

Explanation: (1 + 2 + 3 + 4+ 5)/5 = 15/5 = 3

11. 5

12. Standard Deviation

13. 42

14. 81 (Range = Highest value – Lowest value = 98 – 17 = 81)

15. 5

Explanation: (x + x + 2 + x + 5 + x + 8 + x + 10)/5= 10

5x + 25 = 50

5x = 50 – 25 = 25

x = 25 / 5 = 5
