1. To find out the modal class, let us the consider the class interval with high frequency

Here, the greatest frequency = 23, so the modal class = 35 â€“ 45,

l = 35,

class width (h) = 10,

fmÂ = 23,

f1Â = 21 and f2Â = 14

The formula to find the mode is

Mode = l+ [(fm-f1)/(2fm-f1-f2)]Ã—h

Substitute the values in the formula, we get

Mode = 35+[(23-21)/(46-21-14)]Ã—10

Mode = 35+(20/11) = 35+1.8

Mode = 36.8 year

So the mode of the given data = 36.8 year

Calculation of Mean:

First find the midpoint using the formula, xi = (upper limit +lower limit)/2

The mean formula is

Mean = xÌ„ = âˆ‘fixiÂ /âˆ‘fi

= 2830/80

= 35.37 years

Therefore, the mean of the given data = 35.37 years
