# In the formula x̄ = a + f_{i}d_{i}/f_{i} for finding the mean of grouped data di ’s are deviations from a of

a. lower limits of the classes

b. upper limits of the classes

c. mid points of the classes

d. frequencies of the class marks

**Solution:**

In the formula given

\(\overline{x}=a+\frac{f_{i}d_{i}}{f_{i}}\)

a is the assumed mean from the class mark xi

d_{i} = x_{i} - a

x_{i} is the data

di is the deviation of class mark (mid value) from the assumed mean ‘a’

Therefore, di’s are deviations from ‘a’ of mid points of the classes.

**✦ Try This: **While calculating the mean of a given data by the assumed-mean method,the following values were obtained:

A = 25, Σf_{i}d_{i} = 110, Σf_{i} = 50

Find the mean.

The formula of assumed mean method is

Assumed mean method = A + (Σf_{i}d_{i}/ Σf_{i})

Substituting the values

= 25 + (110/50)

By further calculation

= 25 + 2.2

= 27.2

Therefore, the mean is 27.2

**Summary:**

In the formula x̄ = a + f_{i}d_{i}/f_{i}, for finding the mean of grouped data di ’s are deviations from a of mid points of the classes
