Question

The bar chart shows the distribution of marks scored by 60 pupils in a test in which the maximum score was 10. If the pass mark was 5, what percentage of the pupils failed the test?

Options

A) 59.4%

B) 50.0%

C) 41.7%

D) 25.0%

The correct answer is C.

Explanation:

\(\begin{array}{c|c} x & 0 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5 & 6 & 7 & 8 & 9 & 10 \\ \hline f & 1 & 9 & 4 & 7 & 10 & 8 & 7 & 9 & 8 & 2 & 1\end{array}\)
no pupils who failed the test = 1 + 3 + 4 + 7 + 10

= 25

5 of pupils who fail = \(\frac{25}{60}\) x 100%

= 41.70%
