b.        Sarin’s family household income if falling in the category of \$2000 to \$2999. What is the percentage of    household in his residential block falling in same category?

Solution:

a.         From the graph,

The number of household in \$4000 to \$4999 category = 19

The number of household in above \$5000 category = 13

The number of household with income above or equal \$4000 per month = 19 + 13 = 32

b.        Total number of household in the survey = 14 + 22 + 26 + 32 = 94

The total number of household in \$2000 to \$2999 category = 22

The percentage of household in \$2000 to \$2999 category = 22/94 × 100% = 23.40%
