# The times, in seconds, taken by 150 athletes to run a 110 m hurdle race are tabulated below:

Class 13.8-14 14-14.2 14.2-14.4 14.4-14.6 14.6-14.8 14.8-15

Frequency 2 4 5 71 48 20

The number of athletes who completed the race in less than 14.6 seconds is:

a. 11

b. 71

c. 82

d. 130

**Solution:**

The number of athletes who completed the race in less then 14.6 seconds is the sum of all frequencies up to the class interval 14.4-14.6

= 2 + 4 + 5 + 71

= 82

Therefore, the number of athletes who completed the race in less than 14.6 seconds is 82.
