Problem 15BSC

Relative Frequencies for Comparisons. In Exercises 15 and 16, construct the relative frequencies and answer the given questions.

Oscar Winners Construct one table (similar to Table 2­9 on page 50) that includes relative frequencies based on the frequency distributions from Exercises 5 and 6, and then compare the ages of Oscar-­winning actresses and actors. Are there notable differences?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 1 :

Given, the ages of Oscar-winning actresses and the frequency

 Age when Oscar was won Frequency 20-29 27 30-39 34 40-49 13 50-59 2 60-69 4 70-79 1 80-89 1

We have to find the relative frequency for comparison

The total frequency = 82

Relative frequency = Example :

Relative frequency = = 32.92

class width : the difference between the upper and lower class limit.

Example : 29-2

= 9

class midpoints : (lower class limit + upper class limit)/ 2

Example : (20+29)/2

= 24.5

class boundaries :

Upper class boundary = Upper limit + ( )  unit of measurement

Ex: 4.9 is the upper class limit and unit of measurement is 0.1

Therefore ,

Upper class boundary = 29 + ( )  1

= 4.95

Lower class boundary = Lower limit + ( )  unit of measurement

Ex: 4.9 is the upper class limit and unit of measurement is 0.1

Therefore ,

Upper class boundary = 20 + ( )  1

= 3.05

 Age when Oscar was won Frequency Relative frequency Class width Class midpoints Class boundaries 20-29 27 32.92 9 24.5 (20.5 , 29.5) 30-39 34 41.46 9 34.5 (30.5 , 39.5) 40-49 13 15.85 9 44.5 (40.5 , 49.5) 50-59 2 2.43 9 54.5 (50.5 , 59.5) 60-69 4 4.88 9 64.5 (60.5 , 69.5) 70-79 1 1.22 9 74.5 (70.5 , 79.5)
