A survey was conducted by a group of students as a part of their environment awareness program, in which they collected the following data regarding the number of plants in 20 houses in a locality. Find the mean number of plants per house
Which method did you use for finding the mean, and why?
The above given data can be represented in the form of table as below:
Mean can be calculated as follows:
where fi = frequency of ith class and
xi = mid value of ith class
We will use the direct method in this as the values of xi and fi are small.
You can also use assumed mean method, but it's not necessary as the values are very small and assumed mean method is better for large values.
