## Maharashtra State Board Class 7 Maths Solutions Chapter 15 Statistics Practice Set 54

Question 1.

The daily rainfall for each day of a week in a certain city is given in millimeters. Find the average rainfall during the week.

9, 11, 8, 20, 10, 16, 12

Solution:

\(\text { Average rainfall during the week }=\frac{\text { sum of rainfall for each day of the week }}{\text { number of days }}\)

= \(\frac{9+11+8+20+10+16+12}{7}\)

= \(\frac { 86 }{ 7 }\)

= 12.285 ≈ 12.29

∴ The average rainfall during the week is 12.29 mm.

Question 2.

During the annual function of a school, a Women’s Self-help Group had set up a snacks stall. Their sales every hour were worth Rs 960, Rs 830, Rs 945, Rs 800, Rs 847, Rs 970 respectively. What was the average of the hourly sales?

Solution:

\(\text { Average hourly sales }=\frac{\text { sum of sales every hour }}{\text { number of hours }}\)

= \(\frac{960+830+945+800+847+970}{6}\)

= \(\frac { 5352 }{ 6 }\)

= Rs 892

∴ The average of the hourly sales was Rs 892.

Question 3.

The annual rainfall in Vidarbha in five years is given below. What is the average rainfall for those 5 years?

900 mm, 650 mm, 450 mm, 733 mm, 400 mm.

Solution:

\(\text { Average rainfall for } 5 \text { years }=\frac{\text { sum of annual rainfall in five years }}{\text { number of years }}\)

= \(\frac{900+650+450+733+400}{5}\)

= \(\frac { 3133 }{ 5 }\)

= 626.6

∴ The average rainfall in Vidarbha for 5 years was 626.6 mm.

Question 4.

A farmer bought some sacks of animal feed. The weights of the sacks are given below in kilograms. What is the average weight of the sacks?

49.8, 49.7, 49.5, 49.3, 50,48.9, 49.2, 48.8.

Solution:

\(\text { Average weight of the sacks }=\frac{\text { sum of weight of each sack }}{\text { number of sacks }}\)

= \(\frac{49.8+49.7+49.5+49.3+50+48.9+49.2+48.8}{8}\)

= \(\frac { 395.2 }{ 8 }\)

= \(\frac { 3952 }{ 80 }\)

= 49.4

∴ The average weight of the sacks is 49.4 kg.

Question 1.

Rutuja practised skipping with a rope all seven days of a week. The number of times she jumped the rope in one minute every day is given below. Find the average number of jumps per minute.

60, 62, 61, 60, 59, 63, 58. (Textbook pg. no. 96)

Solution:

\(\text { Average }=\frac{\text { Sum of the number of jumps ons even days }}{\text { Total number of days }}\)

= \(\frac{[60]+[62]+[61]+[60]+[59]+[63]+[58]}{7}\)

= \(\frac { 423 }{ 7 }\)

= 60.42

∴ Average number of jumps per minute = 60.42
