# The following table gives the number of pages written by Sarika for completing her own book for 30 days

Number of pages written per day 16-18 19-21 22-24 25-27 28-30

Number of days 1 3 4 9 13

Find the mean number of pages written per day.

**Solution:**

Given, the above data gives the number of pages written by Sarika for completing her own book for 30 days.

We have to find the mean number of pages written per day.

Number of pages written per day | Number of days (f) | Midpoint x | f × x |

16 - 18 | 1 | 17 | 17 |

19 - 21 | 3 | 20 | 60 |

22 - 24 | 4 | 23 | 92 |

25 - 27 | 9 | 26 | 234 |

28 - 30 | 13 | 29 | 377 |

Total | ∑f = 30 | ∑fx = 780 |

By direct method,

Mean = ∑fx / ∑f

From the table,

Mean = 780/30

= 78/3

= 26

Therefore, the mean is 26.
