# The weights (in kg) of 50 wrestlers are recorded in the following table

Weight (kg) 100-110 110-120 120-130 130-140 140-150

Number of wrestlers 4 14 21 8 3

Find the mean weight of the wrestlers

**Solution:**

Given, the data represents the weights of 50 wrestlers.

We have to find the mean weight of the wrestlers.

Weight (kg) | Number of wrestlers (f) | Midpoint x | f × x |

100 - 110 | 4 | 105 | 420 |

110 - 120 | 14 | 115 | 1610 |

120 - 130 | 21 | 125 | 2625 |

130 - 140 | 8 | 135 | 1080 |

140 - 150 | 3 | 145 | 435 |

Total | ∑f = 50 | ∑fx = 6170 |

By direct method,

Mean = ∑fx / ∑f

From the table,

Mean = 6170/50

= 617/5

= 123.4

Therefore, the mean is 123.4 kg
