#### Question 1:

Following is the monthly income of eight families in a locality
Monthly Income (₹) : 70, 10, 500, 75, 13, 250, 8, 42
Find out arithmetic mean using Direct Method and Short-cut Method.

 Families Monthly income (X) Deviation from the Assumed average (d = X − A) (A = 75) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 70 10 500 75 (A) 13 250 8 42 −5 −65 425 0 −62 175 −67 −33 (N) = 8 (ΣX)=968 Σd = −232 + 600 = 368

where,
N= Number of items
$\Sigma X$= Total of monthly income of all the families
$\Sigma d$= net sum of deviations

Calculation of Mean by Direct Method
$\overline{)X}=\frac{\Sigma X}{N}=\frac{968}{8}=121$

Calculation of mean by short cut method

So, mean monthly income of a family is Rs 121.

where,
N= Number of items
$\Sigma X$= Total of monthly income of all the families
$\Sigma d$= net sum of deviations

Calculation of Mean by direct method

Calculation of mean by short cut method

So, mean marks in statistics is 50.27.

A.M. = X=ΣXN       =163010=163
Shortcut Method:-
Here, we take 25 as the assumed mean, so we tale the deviation of each item in the series from 25.
$\overline{)X}=A+\frac{\Sigma fd}{\Sigma f}$

Thus, the mean of the series is 24.925

#### Question 6:

 Class less than 10 10−20 20−30 30−40 40−50 50−60 more than 60 Frequency 5 12 18 22 6 4 3

It must be noted that the given distribution is an open ended distribution, that is, the first and the last class interval are not explicitly defined. As mean is based on all the items in the series, so for such distributions mean cannot be calculated accurately. ​
However, going by the symmetry of the distribution we assume the first and the last class interval to be (0- 10) and (60 - 70), respectively

 Class Interval Mid-Values (m) Frequency (f) fm 0 − 10 10 − 20 20 − 30 30 − 40 40 − 50 50 − 60 60 − 70 5 15 25 35 45 55 65 5 12 18 22 6 4 3 25 180 450 770 270 220 195 ∑f = 70 ∑fm = 2110
Using the direct method to find the mean, we get

Hence, the mean of the given distribution is 30.14

#### Question 13:

Mean marks obtained by a student in his five subjects are 15. In English he secures 8 marks, in Economics 12, in Mathematics 18, and in Commerce 9. Find out the marks he secured in Statistics.

Given:
Mean marks of five subjects = $\overline{)X}$ = 28
Marks in English = 8
Marks in Economics = 12
Marks in Mathematics = 18
Marks in Commerce = 9

To find: Marks in Statistics
Let marks scored in statistics be S

Substituting the given values in the formula for mean
$\overline{)X}=\frac{\Sigma X}{N}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}15=\frac{S+8+12+18+9}{5}$
15 × 5 = S + 47
75 − 47 = S
S = 28
Hence, marks scored in statistics is 28

#### Question 14:

Mean value of the weekly income of 40 families is 265. But in the calculation, income of one family was read as 150 instead of 115. Find the "Corrected" mean.

Given:
Mean ,$\overline{)X}$ = 265
Number of observations, N=40
Incorrect observation = 150
Correct observation = 115

Wrong ×N or, ΣX = 265 ×40 = 10,600

Thus, wrong summation X, i.e., ${\left(\Sigma X\right)}_{wrong}$ is 10,600.
Now, correct mean is calculated using the following formula.

Hence, the correct mean is 264.125

#### Question 15:

Average pocket allowance of 6 students is ₹45. Of these, pocket allowance of 5 students is 20, 30, 22, 24 and 32 respectively. What is the pocket allowance of the sixth student?

Given:
Average, $\overline{)X}$ = 45
Number of students, N = 6

Let sixth student's allowance be Z

Substituting the given values in the formula for mean

or, 45 × 6 = 128 + Z
or, 270 − 128 = Z
or, Z = 142
Hence, sixth student's allowance is Rs. 142

#### Question 16:

The following table shows wages of the workers. Calculate the average wage of the workers.

 Wages (₹) 10−19 20−29 30−39 40−49 50−59 Number of Workers 8 9 12 11 6

 Wages (X) Mid Value (m) Frequency (f) Deviation d = m − A $\mathbit{d}\mathbf{\text{'}}\mathbf{=}\frac{d}{i}$ fd' 10 − 19 20 − 29 30 − 39 40 − 49 50 − 59 14.5 24.5      34.5 =A 44.5 54.5 8 9 12 11 6 −20 −10 0 10 20 −2 −1 0 1 2 −16 −9 0 11 12 ∑f = 46 ∑fd = −2

We use the step-deviation method to find the value of mean.
$\overline{)X}=A+\frac{\Sigma fd\text{'}}{\Sigma f}×i\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=34.5+\left(\frac{-2}{46}\right)×10\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=34.07$

Hence, the mean of the given distribution is 34.07

#### Question 17:

Ten players of the Australian team made an average of 63 runs and ten players of the Indian team made an average of 77 runs. Calculate the average run made by both the teams.

The information given in the question can be summarised as follows.

 Average Runs Number of Players Australian Team $\left({\overline{)X}}_{1}\right)$ = 63 N1 = 10 Indian Team $\left({\overline{)X}}_{2}\right)$ = 77 N1 = 10

The combined average is calculated using the following formula.

Hence, the average scored by both the teams is 70.

#### Question 18:

Average income of 50 families is ₹3,000. Of these average income of 12 families is ₹1,800. Find out the average income of the remaining families.

The information given in the question can be summarised as follows.
Average income of all the 50 families = ${\overline{)X}}_{12}$ = 3000

 Average income Number of families 12 families $\left({\overline{)X}}_{1}\right)$ = 1800 N1 = 12 38 families $\left({\overline{)X}}_{2}\right)$ = ? N1 = 38

Substituting the given values in the formula for combined mean
2or, 150000 − 21600 = 38X2or, X2 = 3378.95

Hence, the  average income of remaining 38 families is Rs 3,378.95

#### Question 19:

In the following frequency distribution, ifthe arithmetic mean is 45.6, find out missing frequency.

 Wages (₹) 10−20 20−30 30−40 40−50 50−60 60−70 70−80 Number of Workers 5 6 7 X 4 3 9

 Wages (X) Mid Value (m) No. of worker (f) fm 10 − 20 20 − 30 30 − 40 40 − 50 50 − 60 60 − 70 70 − 80 15 25 35 45 55 65 75 5 6 7 X 4 3 9 75 150 245 45 220 195 675 ∑f = 34 + X ∑fm = 1560 + 45X

Substituting the values in the formula for mean.

$X=\frac{9.6}{.6}$
X = 16
Hence, the missing frequency is 16.

#### Question 20:

Calculate the weighted mean of the following data:

 Items 96 102 104 124 148 164 Weight 5 6 3 7 12 9

 Items (X) Weight (W) WX 96 102 104 124 148 164 5 6 3 7 12 9 480 612 312 868 1776 1476 ∑W = 42 ∑WX = 5524

Hence, the weighted mean is 131.52

#### Question 21:

A student obtained 60 marks in English, 75 in Hindi, 63 in Mathematics, 59 in Economics and 55 in Statistics. Calculate weighted mean of the marks if weights are respectively 2, 1, 5, 5 and 3.

The information given in the question can be presented as follows.

 Subject Marks (X) Weight (W) WX English Hindi Mathematics Economics Statistics 60 75 63 59 55 2 1 5 5 3 120 75 315 295 165 ∑W = 16 ∑WX = 970

Hence, the weighted mean marks is 60.625

#### Question 22:

A housewife uses 10 kg of wheat, 20 kg of Fuel, 5 kg of Sugar, and 2 kg of oil. Prices (per kg) of these items are ₹1.50, 50 paise, ₹ 2.80 and ₹10 respectively. Taking quantities used as weights find out the weighted arithmetic average of the prices.

The information given in the question can be summarised as follows.

 Price (X) Quantity (W) WX 1.5 0.5 2.8 10 10 20 5 2 15 10 14 20 ∑W = 37 ∑WX = 59

Hence, the weighted average of the prices is Rs 1.59

#### Question 23:

Calculate weighted mean of the following data by using Direct and Short-cut Methods:

 Items 81 76 74 58 70 73 Weight 2 3 6 7 3 7
