# Obtain the mean of the following distribution:

Frequency Variable

4 4

8 6

14 8

11 10

3 12

**Solution:**

Given, the table represents the __frequency distribution__.

We have to find the mean of the distribution.

Mean of ungrouped data = Mean = ∑fx / ∑f

Where, f are the frequencies of x

__Mean__ = [(4 × 4) + (8 × 6) + (14 × 8) + (11 × 10) + (3 × 12)] / (4 + 8 + 14 + 11 + 3)

= [16 + 48 + 112 + 110 + 36] / (12 + 14 + 14)

= (42 + 48 + 222) / (12 + 28)

= (90 + 222) / (40)

= 322 / 40

= 8.05

Therefore, the mean of the distribution is 8.05
