1. The number of telephone calls received at an exchange per interval for 250 successive one- minute intervals are given in the following frequency table:

 No. of calls (x): 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 No. of intervals (f): 15 24 29 46 54 43 39

Compute the mean number of calls per interval.

Solution:

Let the assumed mean(A) = 3

 No. of calls xi No. of intervals fi ui = xi – A = xi – 3 fi ui 0 15 -3 -45 1 24 -2 -48 2 29 -1 -29 3 46 0 0 4 54 1 54 5 43 2 86 6 39 3 117 N = 250 Σ fixi = 135

Mean number of calls = A + Σ fixi / N

= 3 + 135/250

= (750 + 135)/ 250 = 885/ 250

= 3.54

2. Five coins were simultaneously tossed 1000 times, and at each toss the number of heads was observed. The number of tosses during which 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 heads were obtained are shown in the table below. Find the mean number of heads per toss.

 No. of heads per toss (x): 0 1 2 3 4 5 No. of tosses (f): 38 144 342 287 164 25

Solution:

Let the assumed mean(A) = 2

 No. of heads per toss xi No of intervals fi ui = xi – A = xi – 2 fi ui 0 38 -2 -76 1 144 -1 -144 2 342 0 0 3 287 1 287 4 164 2 328 5 25 3 75 N = 1000 Σ fixi = 470

Mean number of heads per toss = A + Σ fixi / N

= 2 + 470/1000

= 2 + 0.470

= 2.470

3. The following table gives the number of branches and number of plants in the garden of a school.

 No of branches (x): 2 3 4 5 6 No of plants (f): 49 43 57 38 13

Calculate the average number of branches per plant.

Solution:

Let the assumed mean (A) = 4

 No of branches xi No of plants fi ui = xi − A = xi − 4 fi ui 2 49 -2 -98 3 43 -1 -43 4 57 0 0 5 38 1 38 6 13 2 26 N = 200 Σ fixi = -77

Average number of branches per plant = A + Σ fixi / N = 4 + (-77/200)

= 4 -77/200

= (800 -77)/200

= 3.615

4. The following table gives the number of children of 150 families in a village

 No of children (x): 0 1 2 3 4 5 No of families (f): 10 21 55 42 15 7

Find the average number of children per family.

Solution:

Let the assumed mean (A) = 2

 No of children xi No of families fi ui = xi − A = xi − 2 fi ui 0 10 -2 -20 1 21 -1 -21 2 55 0 0 3 42 1 42 4 15 2 30 5 7 3 21 N = 150 Σ fixi = 52

Average number of children for family = A + Σ fixi / N = 2 + 52/150

= (300 +52)/150

= 352/150

= 2.35 (corrected to neat decimal)
