The times, to the nearest minute, are summarised in the following table : Time ( minutes) Number of clients 10-14 15-19 20-24 25-29 30-34 35-44 45-59 60-89 90-119 2 5 17 33 27 25 7 3 1 Total 120 a) calculate the median and quartiles of this distribution. [ 5 marks] b) comment on the skewness of the distribution. [ 1 mark ] c) calculate the mean of the above data [ 2 marks] d) the solicitors are undecided whether to use median or mean to summarise the data. State, giving a reason, which you would recommend them to use. [ 2 marks] 2. The events A and B are such that P(A
