Text Solution

What is known?

Runs in eight innings.

What is unknown?

Mean Score

Reasoning:

\(\begin{align}\text{Mean of score}\!=\!\frac{\text{Sum of all runs}} {\text{Number of innings }}\end{align}\)

Steps:

Total number of innings = \(8\) 

Scores of cricketer in \(8\) innings

\[\begin{align} = 58,76,40,35,46,45,0,100\end{align}\]

Mean of score

\[\begin{align} &= \frac{{\left[ \begin{array}{l}58 + 76 + 40 + 35 +\\ 46 + 45 + 0 + 100\end{array} \right]}}{8}\\ &= \frac{{400}}{8}\\ &= 50\end{align}\]

Thus, the mean score of a cricketer in \(8\) innings is \(50.\)
