Exercise 20

**1. Find the mean of 8, 6, 10, 12, 1, 3, 4, 4.**

**Solution: **

Given data,

8, 6, 10, 12, 1, 3, 4, 4

Here, n = 8

âˆ´ Mean (xÌ„)

Æ© x_{i}/ n = (8 + 6 + 10 + 12 + 1+ 3 + 4 + 4)/8

= 48/8 = 8

Therefore, mean of the given data is 8.

**2. 5 people were asked about the time in a week they spend in doing social work in theirÂ community. They replied 10, 7, 13, 20 and 15 hours, respectively. Find the mean time in a week devoted by them for social work.**

**Solution: **

Given data,

10, 7, 13, 20, 15

Here, n = 5

âˆ´ Mean (xÌ„)

Æ© x_{i}/ n = (10 + 7 + 13 + 20 + 15)/5

= 65/5 = 13

Therefore, the mean time in a week devoted by them for social work is 8 hours.

**3. The enrollment of a school during six consecutive years was as follows:**

**1620, 2060, 2540, 3250, 3500, 3710.
Find the mean enrollment.**

**Solution: **

Given data,

1620, 2060, 2540, 3250, 3500, 3710

Here, n = 6

âˆ´ Mean (xÌ„)

Æ© x_{i}/ n = (1620 + 2060 + 2540 + 3250 + 3500 + 3710)/5

= 16680/6 = 2780

Therefore, the mean enrollment is 2780.

**4. Find the mean of the first twelve natural numbers.**

**Solution: **

The first twelve natural numbers are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Here, n = 12

âˆ´ Mean (xÌ„)

Æ© x_{i}/ n = (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12)/12

= 78/12 = 6.5

Therefore, the mean of the first twelve natural numbers is 6.5

**5. (i) Find the mean of the first six prime numbers.**

**(ii) Find the mean of the first seven odd prime numbers.**

**Solution: **

(i) First 6 prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13

Here, n = 6

âˆ´ Mean (xÌ„)

Æ© x_{i}/ n = (2 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13)/6

= 41/6

Therefore, the mean of the first six prime numbers is 41/6.

(ii) First seven odd prime numbers are 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19

Here, n = 7

âˆ´ Mean (xÌ„)

Æ© x_{i}/ n = (3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19)/7

= 75/7

Therefore, the mean of the first six prime numbers is 75/7.

**6. (i)The marks (out of 100) obtained by a group of students in a Mathematics test are 81, 72, 90, 90, 85, 86, 70, 93 and 71. Find the mean marks obtained by the group of students.
(ii) The mean of the age of three students Vijay, Rahul and Rakhi is 15 years. If their ages are in the ratio 4 : 5 : 6 respectively, then find their ages.**

**Solution: **

(i) The marks obtained by the group of students are:

81, 72, 90, 90, 85, 86, 70, 93, 71

Here, n = 9

âˆ´ Mean (xÌ„)

Æ© x_{i}/ n = (81 + 72 + 90 + 90 + 85 + 86 + 70 + 93 + 71)/9

= 738/9 = 82

Therefore, the mean marks obtained by the group of students is 82.

(ii) Given, the mean of the age of three students Vijay, Rahul and Rakhi is 15 years.

So, n = 3

Now, the sum of ages of the 3 students = 15 x 3 = 45

Also given, ratio of their ages is 4 : 5 : 6

Sum of ratios = 4 + 5 + 6 = 15

Hence,

Vijayâ€™s age = (45/15) x 4 = 12 years

Rahulâ€™s age = (45/15) x 5 = 15 years

Rakhiâ€™s age = (45/15) x 6 = 18 years

**7. The mean of 5 numbers is 20. If one number is excluded, mean of the remaining numbers becomes 23. Find the excluded number.**

**Solution: **

Given,

The mean of 5 numbers = 20

So, the total sum of the numbers = 20 x 5 = 100

After excluding one number,

The mean of the remaining 4 numbers = 23

So, the total sum of these numbers = 23 x 4 = 92

Hence,

The excluded number is = 100 â€“ 92 = 8.

**8. The mean of 25 observations is 27. If one observation is included, the mean still remainsÂ 27. Find the included observation.**

**Solution: **

Given,

The mean of 25 observations is 27.

So,

The total sum of all the 25 observations = 27 x 25 = 675

After one observation is included,

Now the mean of 26 (25 + 1) numbers = 27

So,

The total sum of all the 26 observations = 27 x 26 = 702

Hence,

The included observation = 702 â€“ 675 = 27

**9. The mean of 5 observations is 15. If the mean of first three observations is 14 and that**

**of the last three is 17, find the third observation.**

**Solution: **

Given,

The mean of 5 observations = 15

So, total sum of the 5 observations = 15 x 5 = 75

Also given,

Mean of first 3 observations = 14

So, the sum of the 3 observations = 14 x 3 = 42

And, the mean of last 3 observations = 17

So, the sum of last 3 observations = 17 x 3 = 51

Thus, the total of 3 + 3 observations = 42 + 51 = 93

Hence,

The third observation = 93 â€“ 75 = 18.

**10. The mean of 8 variate is 10.5. If seven of them are 3, 15, 7, 19, 2, 17 and 8 then find**

**the 8 ^{th} variate.**

**Solution: **

Given,

Seven out of eight variates are: 3, 15, 7, 19, 2, 17 and 8

Mean of 8 variates = 10.5

So, the total of 8 variates = 10.5 x 8 = 84

Now,

Sum of seven variates = (3 + 15 + 7 + 19 + 2 + 17 + 8) = 71

Hence,

The 8^{th} variate = 84 â€“ 71 = 13.

**11. The mean weight of 8 students is 45.5 kg. Two more students having weights 41.7 kg and 53.3 kg join the group. What is the new mean weight?**

**Solution: **

Given,

The mean weight of 8 students = 45.5 kg

So, the total weight of 8 students = 45.5 x 8 = 364 kg

Weight of two more students are 41.7 kg and 53.3 kg

Now,

The total weight of 10 (8 + 2) students = 364 + 41.7 + 53.3

= 364 + 95

= 459 kg

Hence, the new mean weight of all the 10 students = 459/10 = 45.9 kg

**12. Mean of 9 observations was found to be 35. Later on, it was detected that an observation 81 was misread as 18. Find the correct mean of the observations.**

**Solution:**

Given,

Mean of 9 observations = 35

So, the sum of all 9 observations = 35 x 9 = 315

Now, the difference due to misread = 81 â€“ 18 = 63

Thus, the actual sum = 315 + 63 = 378

Hence,

The actual mean = 378/ 9 = 42.

**13. A student scored the following marks in 11 questions of a question paper:**

**7, 3, 4, 1, 5, 8, 2, 2, 5, 7, 6.
Find the median marks.**

**Solution: **

Given,

Marks scored in 11 questions of a question paper by the student are:

7, 3, 4, 1, 5, 8, 2, 2, 5, 7, 6

Arranging it in descending order, we have

1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 8

Here, n = 11 which is odd

âˆ´ Median = (n + 1)/2^{th} term

= (11 + 1)/2 = 12/2 = 6^{th} term i.e 5

Hence, the median mark is 5.

**14. In a Science test given to a group of students, the marks scored by them (out of 100) are**

**1, 39, 52, 48, 54, 62, 46, 52, 40, 96, 42, 40, 98, 60, 52.
Find the mean and median of this data.**

**Solution: **

On arranging the marks obtained by the students, we have

39, 40, 40, 41, 42, 46, 48, 52, 52, 52, 54, 60, 62, 96, 98

Here, n = 15 which is odd

âˆ´ Mean (xÌ„)

Æ© x_{i}/ n = (39 + 40 + 40 + 41 + 42 + 46 + 48 + 52 + 52 + 52 + 54 + 60 + 62 + 96 + 98)/15

= 822/15 = 54.8

And,

Median = (15 + 1)/2^{th} term

= 16/2 = 8^{th} term i.e. 52

Therefore, for the given data mean = 54.8 and median = 52.

**15. The points scored by a Kabaddi team in a series of matches are as follow**

**17, 2, 5, 27, 15, 8, 14, 10, 48, 10, 7, 24, 8, 28, 18.**

**Find the mean and the median of the points scored by the Kabaddi team**

**Solution: **

Letâ€™s arrange the given data in descending order:

2, 5, 7, 7, 8, 8, 10, 10, 14, 15, 17, 18, 24, 27, 28, 48

Here, n = 16 when is even

âˆ´ Mean (xÌ„)

Æ© x_{i}/ n = (2 + 5 + 7 + 7 + 8 + 8 + 10 + 10 + 14 + 15 + 17 + 18 + 24 + 27 + 28 + 48)/15

= 248/16 = 15.5

And,

Median = Â½ [(16/2)^{th} term + (16/2 + 1)^{th} term]

= Â½ (8^{th} term + 9^{th} term)

= Â½ (10 + 14)

= Â½ x 24 = 12

Therefore, the mean and the median of the points scored by the Kabaddi team are 15.5 and 14 respectively.

**16. The following observations have been arranged in ascending order. If the median**

**the data is 47.5, find the value of x.
17, 21, 23, 29, 39, 40, x, 50, 51, 54, 59, 67, 91, 93**

**Solution: **

Given data,

17, 21, 23, 29, 39, 40, x, 50, 51, 54, 59, 67, 91, 93

Here, n = 14 which is even

As the given data is arranged in descending order

Median = Â½ [(14/2)^{th} term + (14/2 + 1)^{th} term]

= Â½ (7^{th} term + 8^{th} term)

â‡’ 47.5 = Â½ (x + 50)

95 = x + 50

x = 95 â€“ 50 = 45

Hence, the value of x is 45.

**17. The following observations have been arranged in ascending order. If the median**

**the data is 13, find the value of x.
3, 6, 7, 10, x, x + 4, 19, 20, 25, 28.**

**Solution: **

Given observations in ascending order,

3, 6, 7, 10, x, x + 4, 19, 20, 25, 28

Here, n = 10 which is even and median = 13

So,

Median = Â½ [(10/2)^{th} term + (10/2 + 1)^{th} term]

= Â½ (5^{th} term + 6^{th} term)

= Â½ (x + x + 4)

= (2x + 4)/2

= x + 2

â‡’ x + 2 = 13

x = 13 â€“ 2 = 11

Hence, the value of x is 11.
