## Question

A cricketer scores the following runs in eight innings:

\(58, 76, 40, 35, 46, 45, 0, 100\)

Find the mean score.

## 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:**

\(\begin{align}\text{Total number of innings}& = 8 \\ {\text{Scores of cricketer in 8 innings}}& = 58,76,40,35,46,45,0,100\end{align}\)

\[\begin{align}{\text{Mean of score}} &= \frac{{58 + 76 + 40 + 35 + 46 + 45 + 0 + 100}}{8}\\ &= \frac{{400}}{8}\\ &= 50\end{align}\]

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