## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 10th Maths Solutions Chapter 8 Statistics and Probability Ex 8.1

**10th Maths Exercise 8.1 Samacheer Kalvi Question 1.**

Find the range and coefficient of range of the following data.

(i) 63, 89, 98, 125, 79, 108, 117, 68

(ii) 43.5, 13.6, 18.9, 38.4, 61.4, 29.8

Solution:

Range R = L – S.

L – Largest value,

S – Smallest value.

(i) 63, 89, 98, 125, 79, 108, 117, 68.

Here L = 125

S = 63

∴ R = L – S = 125 – 63 = 62

**Exercise 8.1 Class 10 Samacheer Question 2.**

If the range and the smallest value of a set of data are 36.8 and 13.4 respectively, then find the largest value.

Answer:

Range = 36.8

Smallest value (S) = 13.4

Range = L – S

36.8 = L – 13.4

L = 36.8 + 13.4 = 50.2

Largest value = 50.2

**Ex 8.1 Class 10 Samacheer Question 3.**

Calculate the range of the following data.

Solution:

Here the largest value = 650

The smallest value =400

∴ Range = L – S = 650 – 400

= 250

**10th new syllabus maths exercise 8.1 Question 4.**

A teacher asked the students to complete 60 pages of a record notebook. Eight students have completed only 32, 35, 37, 30, 33, 36, 35 and 37 pages. Find the standard deviation of the pages yet to be completed by them.

Solution:

**10th Maths Statistics And Probability Question 5.**

Find the variance and standard deviation of the wages of 9 workers given below:

₹ 310, ₹ 290, ₹ 320, ₹ 280, ₹ 300, ₹ 290, ₹ 320, ₹ 310, ₹ 280.

**10th Maths Exercise 8.1 Question 6.**

A wall clock strikes the bell once at 1 o’clock, 2 times at 2 o’clock, 3 times at 3 o’clock and so on. How many times will it strike in a particular day? Find the standard deviation of the number of strikes the bell make a day.

Solution:

**10th Maths Ex 8.1 Question 7.**

Find the standard deviation of the first 21 natural numbers.

Solution:

**10th Maths Exercise 8.1 In Tamil Question 8.**

If the standard deviation of a data is 4.5 and if each value of the data is decreased by 5, then find the new standard deviation.

Answer:

The standard deviation of the data = 4.5

Each data is decreased by 5

The new standard deviation = 4.5

**10th Maths 8.1 Question 9.**

If the standard deviation of a data is 3.6 and each value of the data is divided by 3, then find the new variance and new standard deviation.

Solution:

If the standard deviation of a data is 3.6, and each of the data is divided by 3 then the new standard deviation is also divided by 3.

∴ The new standard deviation = \(\frac{3.6}{3}\)

= 1.2

The new variance = (standard deviation)^{2}

\(=\sigma^{2}=1.2^{2}=1.44\)

**10th Maths Chapter 8 Exercise 8.1 Question 10.**
