The mean of 30 observations recorded in an experiment is 5. lf the observed largest value of 34 is deleted, find the mean of the remaining observations

  • A.
    5
  • B.
    4
  • C.
    3.9
  • D.
    3.4
  • E.
    3.0
Correct Answer: Option B
Explanation

x = 5, (frac{sum {fx}}{sum {f}}) =
5= (frac{sum {fx}}{30})
(sum {fx}) = 5 x 30 = 150; 150 – 34 = 116
(sum {f}) = 29
(sum {fx}) = 116
= (frac{116}{29}) = 4
