Q.5

A survey was carried out to study how much a young couple spends on
eating out at fast food joints per occasion.

The following data was collected after questioning 100 young couples.

Amount Spent
(Rs.)
per occasion
No of
Young
Couples
200 - 400 5
400 - 600 19
600 - 800 30
800 - 1000 26
1000 - 1200 20

a) What is the average and modal spending of the couples per occasion?
b) Analyze whether the spending is skewed? On which side?

OR

a) What is the median spending of the couples per occasion?
b) By using quartiles, find above which amount 75% of the young couples
spend? Also find above which amount 25% of the young couples spend?
