**Question 17.**

**The mean of marks scored by 100 students was found to be 40, later on it was discovered that a score of 53 was misread as 83. Find the correct mean.**

**Solution:**

Mean of 40 observations = 100

Total sum of 40 observations = 100 × 40 = 4000

Incorrect total of 40 observation is = 4000

Correct total of 40 observations = 4000 – 83 + 53 = 3970

∴ Correct mean = = 39.70

**Question 18.**

**The mean of five numbers is 27. If one number is excluded, the mean of remaining numbers is 25. Find the excluded number.**

**Solution:**

Mean of 5 observations = 27

Total sum of 5 observations = 27 × 5 = 135

On excluding an observation, the mean of remaining 6 observations = 25

⇒ Total of remaining 4 observations = 25 x 4 = 100

⇒ Included observation = Total mean of 5 observations – Total mean of 4 observations

= 135- 100 = 35

**Question 19.**

**The mean of 5 numbers is 27. If one new number is included, the new mean is 25. Find the included number.**

**Solution:**

Mean of 5 observations = 27

Total sum of 5 observations = 27 x 5 = 135

On including an observation the mean of 6 observation = 25 x 6 = 150

⇒ Included observations = Total Mean of 6 observations – Total mean of 5 observations = 150- 135 = 15

**Question 20.**

**Mean of 5 numbers is 20 and mean of other 5 numbers is 30. Find the mean of all the 10 numbers taken together.**

**Solution:**

The mean of 5 number = 20

Then, mean of other 5 number = 30

**Solution:**

**(i)** Arranging the Numbers in ascending order : 3, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 7, 9, 13

Mostly repeated term = 6

∴ Mode = 6

**(ii)** Arranging the Numbers in ascending order = 7, 7, 8, 10, 10, 10, 11, 13, 14

Mostly repeated term =10

∴ Mode = 10
