The runs scored by two teams A and B on the first 60 balls in a cricket match are given below:
Represent the data of both the teams on the same graph by frequency polygons. [Hint: First make the class intervals continuous.]
Solution:
- It can be observed from the given data that the class intervals of the given data are not continuous. There is a gap of ‘1’ unit between them. So, to make the class intervals continuous, 0.5 has to be added to every upper-class limit and 0.5 has to be subtracted from the lower-class limit:
- The number of balls class mark can also be found as shown below:
Class Mark = (Upper Limit + Lower Limit) / 2
The data table with continuous interval and with class mark is as below:

The frequency polygon for the above data can be constructed by
- Number of balls on x-axis using class mark values.
- Runs scored on y-axis with an approximate scale of “1 unit = 1 run” as the lowest run is 1 and the highest is10.
