Data Handling
Ex 3.2 | Question 4

## Text Solution

What is known?

Given numbers

What is unknown?

The mode and median of the data

Reasoning:

Mode $$=$$ Mode is the observation that occurs highest number of times

Median $$=$$ Median is the middle observation

Steps:

Given data $$= 13, 16, 12, 14, 19, 12, 14, 13, 14$$

Arranging the data in ascending order, we get $$12, 12, 13, 13, 14, 14, 14, 16, 19.$$

$$∴$$ Mode is the observation that occurs highest number of times.

$$∴$$ Mode $$= 14$$

Also, median is the middle observation.

$$∴$$ Median $$= 14$$ ($$5$$th observation)
