No. of days | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |
No. of students | 20 | x | 50 | 40 | 2x | 60 |
The distribution above shows the number of days a group of 260 students were absents from school in a particular term. How many students were absent for at least four days in the term
- A.
210 - B.
40 - C.
120 - D.
160
Correct Answer: Option D
Explanation
20 + X + 50 + 40 + 2X + 60 = 260
3X + 170 = 260
3X = 260 – 170
3x = 90
x = 30
Absent for at least 4 days
4 | 5 | 6 |
40 | 2x | 60 |
i.e 40 + 2x + 60 = 40 + (2 x 30) + 60
= 40 + 60 + 60
= 160
