# Draw the frequency polygon representing the above data without drawing the histogram. Following table shows a frequency distribution for the speed of cars passing through at a particular spot on a highway :

Class interval Frequency

30 - 40 3

40 - 50 6

50 - 60 25

60 - 70 65

70 - 80 50

80 - 90 28

90 - 100 14

**Solution:**

Given, the table represents the __frequency distribution__ for the speed of cars passing through a particular spot on a highway.

We have to draw a frequency __polygon__ representing the above data without drawing the histogram.

To draw a frequency polygon, first we have to find the class marks

Class mark = (30 + 40)/2 = 70/2 = 35

Class interval | Class marks | Frequency |

30 - 40 | (30 + 40)/2 = 35 | 3 |

40 - 50 | (40 + 50)/2 = 45 | 6 |

50 - 60 | (50 + 60)/2 = 55 | 25 |

60 - 70 | (60 + 70)/2 = 65 | 65 |

70 - 80 | (70 + 80)/2 = 75 | 50 |

80 - 90 | (80 + 90)/2 = 85 | 28 |

90 - 100 | (90 + 100)/2 = 95 | 14 |

We can represent the class marks along the horizontal axis.

The corresponding frequencies are represented along the vertical axis.

The points are B(35, 3) C(45, 6) D(55, 25) E(65, 65) F(75, 50) G(85, 28) and H(95, 14)

A frequency polygon is obtained by plotting the given points,

Consider the classes 20 - 30 and 100 - 110 each with frequency 0.

The class marks of these classes are 25 and 105 at the points A and l are obtained from the graph.

Join all the points using a dotted line.

Therefore, the curve ABCDEFGHI represents the frequency polygon
