# Convert the given frequency distribution into a continuous grouped frequency distribution:

Class Interval Frequency

150-153 7

154-157 7

158-161 15

162-165 10

166-169 5

170-173 6

In which intervals would 153.5 and 157.5 be included?

**Solution:**

Given, the table represents the __frequency distribution__

We have to find in which interval 153.5 and 157.5 be included.

The given frequency distribution is in the inclusive form.

On converting to exclusive form,

Now, consider the classes 150 - 153 and 154 - 157

The lower limit of 154 - 157 is 154.

The upper limit of 150 - 153 is 153.

Half the difference between lower and upper limit = (154 - 153)/2

= 0.5

Thus, we subtract 0.5 from each lower limit and add 0.5 to each upper limit.

The table for continuous grouped frequency distribution becomes,

Class Interval | Frequency |

149.5 - 153.5 | 7 |

153.5 - 157.5 | 7 |

157.5 - 161.5 | 15 |

161.5 - 165.5 | 10 |

165.5 - 169.5 | 5 |

169.5 - 173.5 | 6 |

From the above table,

We observe that 153.5 and 157.5 lies in the intervals 153.5 - 157.5 and 157.5 - 161.5
