## Exercise 4

In a survey about the dependency of older people, 23 persons over 75 years were asked about the help they need in daily life. The answers were

B D A B C C B C D E A B C E A B C D B B A A B


where the meanings of letters are:

A No help. B Help climbing stairs. C Help climbing stairs and getting up from a chair or bed. D Help climbing stairs, getting up and dressing. E Help for almost everything.

Construct the frequency distribution table and a suitable chart.

Help $n_i$ $f_i$ $N_i$ $F_i$

## Exercise 5

The number of people treated in the emergency service of a hospital every day of November was

15 23 12 10 28 7 12 17 20 21 18 13 11 12 26 30 6 16 19 22 14 17 21 28 9 16 13 11 16 20

1. Construct the frequency distribution table of the sample.
2. Draw a suitable chart for the frequency distribution.
3. Draw a suitable chart for the cumulative frequency distribution.

People $n_i$ $f_i$ $N_i$ $F_i$
[5,10] 4 0.1333 4 0.1333
(10,15] 9 0.3000 13 0.4333
(15,20] 9 0.3000 22 0.7333
(20,25] 4 0.1333 26 0.8667
(25,30] 4 0.1333 30 1.0000
3.

## Exercise 6

The following frequency distribution table represents the distribution of time (in min) required by people attended in a medical dispensary.

$$\begin{array}{|c|c|c|c|c|} \hline \mbox{Time} & n_{i} & f_{i} & N_{i} & F_{i}\newline \hline \left[ 0,5\right) & 2 & & & \newline \hline \left[ 5,10\right) & & & 8 & \newline \hline \left[ 10,15\right) & & & & 0.7 \newline \hline \left[ 15,20\right) & 6 & & &\newline \hline \end{array}$$

1. Complete the table.
2. Draw the ogive.

$$\begin{array}{|c|c|c|c|c|} \hline \mbox{Time} & n_{i} & f_{i} & N_{i} & F_{i}\newline \hline \left[ 0,5\right) & 2 & 0.1 & 2 & 0.1 \newline \hline \left[ 5,10\right) & 6 & 0.3 & 8 & 0.4 \newline \hline \left[ 10,15\right) & 6 & 0.3 & 14 & 0.7 \newline \hline \left[ 15,20\right) & 6 & 0.3 & 20 & 1\newline \hline \end{array}$$
