# The mean an

Let us assume the observations be x1, x2, x3, x4, x5 and x6

It is given in the question that,

Mean = 8 and Standard deviation = 4 Now, according to question if each observation is multiplied by 3 and the resulting observations are yi then, we have:

yi = 3xi   = 3 × 8

= 24

We know that,   Hence, from (i) and (ii) we have:  Now, by substituting the values of xi and in (ii) we have:   Therefore, standard deviation of new observation = = 12
