# An aircraft has 120 passenger seats. The number of seats occupied during 100 flights is given in the following table

Number of seats 100-104 104-108 108-112 112-116 116-120

Frequency 15 20 32 18 15

Determine the mean number of seats occupied over the flights

**Solution:**

Given, the data represents the seats occupied during 100 flights.

An aircraft has 120 passenger seats.

We have to find the mean number of seats occupied over the flights.

Number of seats | Frequency (f) | Midpoint x | f × x |

100 - 104 | 15 | 102 | 1530 |

104 - 108 | 20 | 106 | 2120 |

108 - 112 | 32 | 110 | 3520 |

112 - 116 | 18 | 114 | 2052 |

116 - 120 | 15 | 118 | 1770 |

Total | ∑f = 100 | ∑fx = 10992 |

By direct method,

Mean = ∑fx / ∑f

From the table,

Mean = 10992/100

= 109.92

Since the seats cannot be in decimal.

Therefore, the mean of seats is 109.92.
