# The marks (out of 100) obtained by a group of students in a science test are 85, 76, 90, 85, 39, 48, 56, 95, 81 and 75. Find the:

(i) Highest and the lowest marks obtained by the students.

(ii) Range of the marks obtained.

(iii) Mean marks obtained by the group.

**Solution:**

We use the basic formulae of statistics such as mean and range to solve the given questions.

Mean marks = Sum of marks / Total number of students

Marks obtained by the group of students = 85, 76, 90, 85, 39, 48, 56, 95, 81, 75

(i) Highest marks obtained by the student = 95, Lowest marks obtained by the student = 39

(ii) Range of the marks obtained = Highest marks – Lowest marks

= 95 – 39

= 56

(iii) Mean marks = Sum of marks / Total number of students

= (85 + 76 + 90 + 85 + 39 + 48 + 56 + 95 + 81 + 75)/10

= 730/10

= 73

Thus, the mean marks obtained by the group of the students are 73.
