1. The table below shows the marks out of 250 of the Grade 12 Mathematical Literacy class for their two September examination papers added together: 189 223 223 200 189 167 98 97 167 1.1 236 221 221 45 236 245 106 93 245 125 69 69 221 125 185 211 103 185 59 45 45 211 59 187 89 200 187 89 190 190 89 89 99 97 45 99 178 183 183 153 178 103 93 221 103 122 210 210 132 122 208 103 211 208

Draw up a frequency and tally table of the above information, using intervals of 50, starting with a class interval of 1 50. What is the average percentage of the class? What percentage of the class achieved less than 45%? What advice would you give the learners who achieved less than 45%?

2.1

Show the information in the frequency table above in a multiple bar graph (Multiple bar graph: two or more bars each category).

2.2 Show the information in the frequency table above in a compound bar graph (Compound bar graph: only one bar per category, but each bar is divided in the ratio of the parts that make up the total frequency for the category). 3. The table below is a frequency table of the heights of the learners in the Grade 12 Mathematical Literacy class. Height Interval (cm) 150 159 160 169 170 179 180 - 189 3.1 3.2 Frequency 4 16 8 2

Determine the midpoints of each height interval. Draw a frequency polygon of the above information with the number of learners on the y-axis and the height intervals on the x-axis. Determine the cumulative frequency of each height interval. Draw an ogive to graphically represent the cumulative frequency as determined in 3.3 above.

Mean: The sum of all the data values divided by the number of data values (average). Median: The value in the middle when all the data values have been arranged from smallest to biggest. (If there are two in the middle, add them together and divide by 2.) Mode: The data value that appears most frequently (can be more than one). Range: The difference between the largest and the smallest data values in a set (largest minus/subtract smallest). Mean:
