Question

# A student scores the following marks in five test: $$45, 54, 41, 57, 43$$. His score is not known for the sixth test. If the mean score is 48 in the six tests, then the standard deviation of the marks in six test is

A
103
B
1003
C
1303
D
103

Solution

## The correct option is D $$\dfrac{10}{\sqrt{3}}$$Let $$x$$ be the $$6^{th}$$ observation$$\Rightarrow 45 + 54 + 41 + 57 + 43 + x = 48 \times 6 = 288$$$$\Rightarrow x = 48$$Variance $$= \left(\dfrac{\sum x_i^2}{6} - (\bar{X})^2\right)$$$$\Rightarrow$$ variance $$=\dfrac{14024}{6} - (48)^2$$$$=\dfrac{100}{3}$$$$\Rightarrow$$ standard deviation $$=\dfrac{10}{\sqrt{3}}$$Maths
