If the total sum observation is divided by a total number of observations, then it is called arithmetic mean. It is denoted by \(\overline{X}\) (Read as X-bar)
∴ Arithmetic Mean = \(\frac{Total\;sum\;of\;observation}{Total\;no.\;of\;observation}\)
For example,
Arithmetic mean of 1, 3, 7, 11, & 13
= \(\frac{1+3+7+11+13}{5}\)
= \(\frac{35}{5}\)
= 7
Solution:
Now,
Sum of a numbers = 12 + 15 + 18 + 19 + 15 + 17 + 16 + 10 + 13 + 15
= 150
number = 10
We know that,
or, Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{\sum{x}}{n}\)
or,Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{150}{10}\)
\(\therefore\) Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = 15
Solution:
Sum of given terms (\(\sum\)x) = 66 mph + 57 mph + 71 mph + 54 mph + 69 mph + 58 mph = 375
numbers of terms (n) = 6
We have,
Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{\sum{x}}{n}\)
= \(\frac{375}{6}\)
= 62.5
The mean driving speed is 62.5 mph.
Solution:
Sum of given terms (\(\sum\)x) = 89+ 73+ 84+ 91+ 87+ 77+ 94 = 515
numbers of terms (n) =7
We have,
Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{\sum{x}}{n}\)
= \(\frac{515}{7}\)
= 73.57
Hence, The mean test score is 73.57
Solution:
Sum of given terms (\(\sum\)x) = $1.79+ $1.61+ $1.96+ $2.08 = $7.44
numbers of terms (n) = 4
We have,
Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{\sum{x}}{n}\)
= \(\frac{7.44}{7}\)
= 1.86
Hence, The mean gasoline price is $1.86
Solution:
Now,
Sum of numbers = 3 + 7 + 10 + 15 + x
= 35 + x
We know that,
or, Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{\sum{x}}{n}\)
or, \(\frac{12}{1}\)= \(\frac{35 + x}{n}\)
or, 60 = 35 + x
or, x = 60 - 35
or, x = 25
\(\therefore\) The value of x is 25.
Solution:
Sum of given terms (\(\sum\)x) = 2.6 min+ 7.2 min+ 3.5 min+ 9.8 min+ 2.5 min =25.6
numbers of terms (n) =5
We have,
Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{\sum{x}}{n}\)
= \(\frac{25.6}{5}\)
= 5.12
Hence, The mean swimming time to the nearest tenth is 5.12 min.
Solution:
Sum of given terms (\(\sum\)x) =
2.7 hr + 8.3 hr + 3.5 hr + 5.1 hr + 4.9 hr = 24.5hr
numbers of terms (n) =5
We have,
Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{\sum{x}}{n}\)
= \(\frac{24.5}{5}\)
= 4.9
Hence, The mean race time is 4.9 hr
Solution:
Now,
Sum of number =m + m+2 + m+4 + m+6 + m+8
= 5m + 20
We know that,
or, Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{\sum{x}}{n}\)
or, \(\frac{13}{1}\) = \(\frac{5m + 20}{5}\)
or, 65 = 5m + 20
or, 5m = 65 - 20
or, 5m = 45
or, m = \(\frac{45}{5}\)
or, m = 9
\(\therefore\) The value of m is 9.
Solution:
Now,
Sum of a numbers =y + y+3 + y+7 + y+10 + y+13 + y+15
= 6y + 48
We know that,
or, Mean (\(\overline{X}\)) = \(\frac{\sum{x}}{n}\)
or, 18 = \(\frac{6y + 48}{6}\)
or, 108 = 6y + 48
or, 108 - 48 = 6y
or, 6y = 60
or, y = \(\frac{60}{6}\)
or, y = 10
\(\therefore\) The value of y is 10.
