Answer.    [14.48]

Solution.  Here we calculate mean by following
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)

MIleage (km/I)

No.of cars (fi) xi fixi
10-12 7 11 77
12-14 12 13 156
14-16 18 15 270
16-18 13 17 221
  \sum f_{i}= 50

 

\sum f_{i}x_{i}= 724

mean\left ( \bar{x} \right )= \frac{\sum f_{i}x_{i}}{\sum f_{i}}= \frac{724}{50}= 14\cdot 48 \ \ km/L
