Cumulative Frequency Diagrams & Box Plots

Cumulative Frequency Time t minutes 0≤t<55≤t<1010≤t<1515≤t<2020≤t<25 Number of students 101630222 A group of 80 students were timed on an exam question. The results are shown in the table. This means any time from 0 up to but not including 5 This means any time from 5 up to but not including 10 0≤t<5 5≤t<10 20≤t<25 This means any time from 20 up to but not including 25

Time (seconds) Frequency 0 < t ≤ 510 5 < t ≤ 1016 10 < t ≤ 1530 15 < t ≤ 2022 20 < t ≤ 252 Cumulative Frequency 10 26 56 78 80 Add a 3 rd column and do a running total of the frequency column Turn the table round so that it is written vertically 10+16 = 26 26+30 = 56 56+22 = 78 78+2 = 80

Time (seconds) Frequency 0 < t ≤ 510 5 < t ≤ 1016 10 < t ≤ 1530 15 < t ≤ 2022 20 < t ≤ 252 Cumulative Frequency 10 26 56 78 80 - as there are 80 students. Final value should always be equal to the number of pieces of data in the question. Scale for x axis, on your graph, is the end points of the class intervals Scale for y axis, should be suitable for your data We now need to show this information in a graph Y axis X axis

Time t minutes 0–56–1011–1516–2021–25 Number of students 101630222 A group of 80 students were timed on an exam question. The results are shown in the table. This means any time from 0 up to 5 This means any time from 6 up to 10 0–5 6–10 21–25 This means any time from 21 up to 25

Time t minutes 0–56–1011–1516–2021–25 Number of students 101630222 A group of 80 students were timed on an exam question. The results are shown in the table. So what happens if the time is 5.3minutes? We have to change the boundaries of each group. This is done by finding ½ way between the end and start of each successive group

Time t minutes 0–56–1011–1516–2021–25 Number of students 101630222 A group of 80 students were timed on an exam question. The results are shown in the table. 0–5.55.5–10.5 10.5–15.515.5–20.5 20.5–25.5 Group 1 ends at 5 and group 2 starts at 6 so ½ way is 5.5 Group 2 ends at 10 and group 3 starts at 11 so ½ way is 10.5 Group 3 ends at 15 and group 4 starts at 16 so ½ way is 15.5

Time (seconds) Frequency 0 – 5.510 5.5 – 10.516 10.5 – 15.530 15.5 – 20.522 20.5 – 25.52 Cumulative Frequency 10 26 56 78 80 Add a 3 rd column and do a running total of the frequency column Turn the table round so that it is written vertically 10+16 = 26 26+30 = 56 56+22 = 78 78+2 = 80 So this time the points are plotted at 5.5, 10.5, 15.5, 20.5 and 25.5
