16. A survey regarding the height (in cm) of 51 girls of class X of a school was conducted and

the following data was obtained:

Height in cm Number of Girls

Less than 140 4

Less than 145 11

Less than 150 29

Less than 155 40

Less than 160 46

Less than l65 51

Find the median height.

**Solution**

To calculate the median height, we need to find the class intervals and their corresponding frequencies .

The given distribution being of thee less than type 140, 145, 150,…..,165 give the upper limits of the corresponding class intervals. So, the classes should be below 140, 145, 150,….., 160, 165 observe that from the given distribution, we find that there are 4-girls with height less than 140 is 4. Now there are 4 girls with heights less than 140. Therefore, the number of girls with height in the interval 140, 145 is 11- 4=7, similarly. The frequencies of 145 150 is 29-11=18, for 150-155 it is 40-29=11, and so on so our frequencies distribution becomes.
