Answer.    [109]

Solution.  Here we calculate mean by following the given steps:

  1. Find the mid point of each interval.
  2. Multiply the frequency of each interval by its mid point.
  3. Get the sum of all the frequencies (f) and sum of all the (fx)
  4. Now divide sum of (fx) by sum of (f) 
Number of seats Frequency fi xi fixi
100-104 15 102 1530
104-108 20 106 2120
108-112 32 110 3520
112-116 18 114 2052
116-120 15 118 177065268
  \sum f_{i}= 100  

\sum f_{i}x_{i}= 10992

mean\left ( \bar{x} \right )= \frac{\sum f_{i}x_{i}}{\sum f_{i}}= \frac{10992}{100}= 109\cdot 92
 number of seats = 109
