If there are 10 values each equal to 10, then S.D. of these values is _________
(A) 100
(B) 20

Compute the variance and S.D. for the following data: Solution:  Question 9.
Calculate S.D. from following data. Solution:
Since data is not continuous, we have to make it continuous.
let u = $$\frac{x-\mathrm{A}}{\mathrm{h}}=\frac{x-54.5}{10}$$
Calculation of variance of u:  Question 10.
Given below is the frequency distribution of marks obtained by 100 students. Compute arithmetic mean and S.D. Solution:
Since data is not continuous, we have to make it continuous.
Let u = $$\frac{x-\mathrm{A}}{\mathrm{h}}=\frac{x-74.5}{10}$$
Calculation of variance of u:  ∴ Var (X) = h2 var (u)
= (10)2 × 1.4875
= 100 × 1.4875
= 148.75
∴ S.D. = σx = √Var(X)
= √148.75
= 12.2 Question 11.
The arithmetic mean and standard deviation of a series of 20 items were calculated by a student as 20 cm and 5 cm respectively. But while calculating them, item 13 was misread as 30. Find the corrected mean and standard deviation.
Solution:
n = 20, $$\bar{x}$$ = 20, σx = 5 …..(given)
$$\bar{x}=\frac{1}{\mathrm{n}} \sum x_{\mathrm{i}}$$
∴ $$\sum x_{\mathrm{i}}=\mathrm{n} \bar{x}$$ = 20 × 20 = 400
Corrected Σxi = Σxi – (incorrect observation) + (correct observation)
= 400 – 30 + 13
= 383 Corrected $$\sum x_{\mathrm{i}}^{2}$$ = $$\sum x_{\mathrm{i}}^{2}$$ – (incorrect observation)2 + (correct observation)2
= 8500 – (30)2 + (13)2
= 8500 – 900 + 169
= 7769 Question 12.
The mean and S.D. of a group of 50 observations are 40 and 5 respectively. If two more observations 60 and 72 are added to the set, find the mean and S.D. of 52 items.
Solution:  Question 13.
The mean height of 200 students is 65 inches. The mean heights of boys and girls are 70 inches and 62 inches respectively and the standard deviations are 8 and 10 respectively. Find the number of boys and combined S.D.
Solution:
Let n1 and n2 be the number of boys and girls respectively.
Let n = 200, $$\bar{x}_{c}$$ = 65, $$\bar{x}_{1}$$ = 70, $$\bar{x}_{2}$$ = 62, σ1 = 8, σ2 = 10
Here, n1 + n2 = n
n1 + n2 = 200 ……(i)
Combined mean ($$\bar{x}_{c}$$) = $$\frac{n_{1} \bar{x}_{1}+n_{2} \bar{x}_{2}}{n_{i}+n_{2}}$$
65 = $$\frac{\mathrm{n}_{1}(70)+\mathrm{n}_{2}(62)}{200}$$ …… [From (i)]
70n1 + 62n2 = 13000
35n1 + 31n2 = 6500 …..(ii)
Solving (i) and (ii), we get
n1 = 75, n2 = 125
Number of boys = 75  Question 14.

There are two companies U and V which manufacture cars. A sample of 40 cars each from these companies is taken and the average running life (in years) is recorded. Which company shows greater consistency?
Solution:
Let f1 denote no. of cars of company U and f2 denote no. of cars of company V.   Here, C.V. (U) < C.V. (V)
∴ Company U shows greater consistency in performance. Question 22.
