# In a Mathematics test, the following marks were obtained by 40 students. Arrange these marks in a table using tally marks.

(a) Find how many students obtained marks equal to or more than 7.

(b) How many students obtained marks below 4?

**Solution:**

We use the concept of data handling to answer the given question.

(a)

The total number of students who got 7 marks = 5

The total number of students who got 8 marks = 4

The total number of students who got 9 marks = 3

The total number of students who got marks equal to or more than 7 = 5 + 4 + 3 = 12

(b)

The total number of students who got 1 marks = 2

The total number of students who got 2 marks = 3

The total number of students who got 3 marks = 3

The total number of students who got marks below 4 = 2 + 3 + 3 = 8
