A study was conducted to find out the concentration of sulphur dioxide in the air in parts per million (ppm) of a certain city. The data obtained for 30 days is as follows:

0.03 0.08 0.08 0.09 0.04 0.17 0.16 0.05 0.02 0.06 0.18 0.20 0.11 0.08 0.12 0.13 0.22 0.07 0.08 0.01 0.10 0.06 0.09 0.18 0.11 0.07 0.05 0.07 0.01 0.04

(i) Make a grouped frequency distribution table for this data with class intervals as 0.00 - 0.04, 0.04 - 0.08, and so on.

(ii) For how many days, was the concentration of sulphur dioxide more than 0.11 parts per million?

(i) Taking class intervals as 0.00, −0.04, 0.04, −0.08, and so on, a grouped frequency table can be constructed as follows. The number of days for which the concentration of SO2 is more than 0.11 is the number of days for which the concentration is in between 0.12 − 0.16, 0.16 − 0.20, 0.20 − 0.24.

(ii) Required number of days = 2 + 4 + 2 = 8 Therefore, for 8 days, the concentration of SO2 is more than 0.11 ppm.
