830, 835, 890, 810, 835, 836, 869, 845, 898, 890, 820, 860, 832, 833, 855, 845, 804, 808, 812, 840, 885, 835, 835, 836, 878, 840, 868, 890, 806, 840.

Using tally marks make a frequency table with intervals as 800 – 810, 810 – 820 and so on

**Solution:**

A frequency distribution shows the frequency of repeated items in a graphical form or tabular form.

The representation of data by frequency distribution table using tally marks is as follows:

Class Intervals |
Tally Marks |
Frequency |

800–810 | ||| | 3 |

810–820 | || | 2 |

820–830 | | | 1 |

830–840 | |||||||| | 9 |

840–850 | |||| | 5 |

850–860 | | | 1 |

860–870 | ||| | 3 |

870–880 | | | 1 |

880–890 | | | 1 |

890–900 | |||| | 4 |

Total | 30 |
