The following table gives the distribution of students of two sections according to the marks obtained by them:

Section A | Section B | ||

Marks | Frequency | Marks | Frequency |

0 - 10 10 - 20 20 - 30 30 - 40 40 - 50 | 3 9 17 9 | 0 – 10 10 20 20 - 30 30 - 40 40 - 50 | 5 19 15 10 1 |

Represent the marks of the students of both the sections on the same graph by two frequency polygons. From the two polygons compare the performance of the two sections.
