Solutions

Now they give the Mode as ##1## i am not getting this...

My understanding 'maybe its the English used' is that we have ##0## children living in 3 houses, 7 houses have ##1## kid each bringing total number of kids to 7!, 5 houses have ##2## kids each in the household bringing total number of kids here to ##10##, in my case the mode ought to be 2. I need some clarity here.

Also looking at this table, 4 kids live in 0 houses and 5 kids also living in 0 houses does not really make sense to me...why not just have (4+5=9) kids live in 0 houses?...
