# The mean of 5 observations is 50. One of the observations was removed from the data, hence the mean became 45. Find the observation which was removed.

Answer :

We know that

⇒ Sum of observations = Mean ×Total number of observations

Sum of 5 observations = 50×5=250

Sum after removing one observation = 4×45=180

⇒ Removed observation = sum of 5 observations – Sum after removing one observation

⇒ Removed observation = 250 -180 =70
