## 7 Table 1 shows the frequency distribution of the scores of a group of pupils in a

game.
Score Number of pupils
10 19 1
20 29 2
30 39 8
40 49 12
50 59 k
60 - 69 1

(a) It is given that the median score of the distribution is 42. Calculate
the value of k. [3marks]

## (b) Use the graph paper to answer this question.

Using a scale of 2 cm to 10 scores on the horizontal axis and 2 cm to
2 pupils on the vertical axis, draw a histogram to represent the
frequency distribution of the scores.
Find the mode score. [4marks]

(c) What is the mode score if the score of each pupil increased by 5?
[1 mark]
