# The mean of the data : 2, 8, 6, 5, 4, 5, 6, 3, 6, 4, 9, 1, 5, 6, 5 is given to be 5. Based on this information, is it correct to say that the mean of the data: 10, 12, 10, 2, 18, 8, 12, 6, 12, 10, 8, 10, 12, 16, 4 is 10? Give reason.

**Solution:**

It is given that

Mean of the data 2, 8, 6, 5, 4, 5, 6, 3, 6, 4, 9, 1, 5, 6, 5 is given to be 5

By arranging it in ascending order

1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 8, 9 -------->(1)

We have to find if the mean of the data 10, 12, 10, 2, 18, 8, 12, 6, 12, 10, 8, 10, 12, 16, 4 is 10

By arranging it in ascending order

2, 4, 6, 8, 8, 10, 10, 10, 10, 12, 12, 12, 12, 16, 18-------->(2)

The 2nd data is obtained by multiplying each observation of 1st data by 2

Here the mean will be twice the mean of the first data.

Therefore, it is correct.

**✦ Try This: **In a sample study of 532 people, it was found that 412 people have a high school certificate. If a person is selected at random, the probability that the person has a high school certificate is :

It is given that

Total number of people in sample study n(S) = 532

Number of people who have a high school certificate n(E) = 412

We know that

Probability that the person has a high school certificate P = n(E)/ n(S)

Substituting the values

= 412/532

= 0.77

Therefore, the probability that the person has a high school certificate is 0.77.
