Countdown to Exams - Day 79 - Frequency and Two-way tables

Today we are taking a look at Frequency and Two-way tables. Frequency tables are created from raw data that have categorised, tallied and then totalled. We can use frequency tables to calculate relative frequencies which can be useful to describe proportions. If the sample is large enough, it can enable us to interpret them as probabilities. Two-way tables provide information about the frequency of two variables and the key to solving problems of this type is to pay attention to the totals column. This will enable you to complete a two-way table accurately and then use the information to calculate probabilities based on the data within the table.

On day 19 we extend our understanding of averages by looking at Grouped frequency tables. Here you will find that your data has been grouped into categories. It is important to note a change in the vocabulary for the questions. Because the data is grouped, you will be unable to use specific values as you don't know what they are hence you will be asked to find an estimate for the mean or an estimate for the median.

You will often have to create two extra columns, one for the midpoints of each group and one for your fx column.

On day 18, we focus on calculating averages from a simple frequency table. There will be times where you will need to create the fx column so that the total amount can be worked out. Remember the formula for the median shows you where the median is located.

It will be important to look and check your answers to see if they are reasonable answers and fit within the data set.
