The mean of 20 observations in an experiment is 4, lf the observed largest value is 23, find the mean of the remaining observations.

  • A.
    4
  • B.
    3
  • C.
    2.85
  • D.
    2.60
  • E.
    2.56
Correct Answer: Option B
Explanation

Mean of 20 observations = 4

All the observations = 20 x 4 = 80

Largest observed value = 23

Remaining observation = 80 – 23 = 57

Mean of observation = 57/19 = 3
