# The weight of coffee in 70 packets are shown in the following table

Weight (in g) Number of packets

200 - 201 12

201 - 202 26

202 - 203 20

203 - 204 9

204 - 205 2

205 - 206 1

Determine the modal weight

**Solution:**

Given, the weight of coffee in 70 packets.

We have to find the modal weight.

Weight (in g) |
Number of packets |

200 - 201 |
12 |

201 - 202 |
26 |

202 - 203 |
20 |

203 - 204 |
9 |

204 - 205 |
2 |

205 - 206 |
1 |

Mode = l + [(f₁ - f₀)/(2f₁ - f₀ - f₂)]h

Where, l is the lower limit of the modal class

f₁ is the frequency of the modal class

f₀ is the frequency preceding the modal class

f₂ is the frequency succeeding the modal class

h is the class size

From the table,

Maximum frequency = 26

This frequency lies in the class 201 - 202

l = 201

h = 1

f₁ = 26

f₀ = 12

f₂ = 20

Now, f₁ - f₀ = 26 - 12 = 14

2f₁ - f₀ - f₂ = 2(26) - 12 - 20

= 52 - 32

= 20

[(f₁ - f₀)/(2f₁ - f₀ - f₂)] = 14/20

= 7/10

= 0.7

Now, mode = 201 + 0.7(1)

= 201 + 0.7

= 201.7

Therefore, the mode is 201.7 g
