• New mean will also be 15

## Explanation:

Given that, mean of twenty observations is 15

therefore,

• mean = 15
• no. of observation = 20
• and, Let Sum of all observations be x

So,

using formula ;

• mean = sum of all observations / total number of observations

→ 15 = x / 20

x = 300

Now, as given that, 3 and 14 are replaced by 8 and 9

therefore,

→ New mean = [ x – ( 3 + 14 ) + ( 8 + 9 ) ] / 20

→ new mean = [ x – 17 + 17 ] / 20

→ new mean = [ 300 ] / 20

New mean = 15

therefore,

• New mean of twenty observations, when 3 and 14 are replaced by 8 and 9 will also be 15 .
2. Mean of twenty observations is 15

So the sum = Now two observations 3 & 14 are replaced by 8 & 9

So the new sum Since the sum remains the same as before

Hence the required mean is same as before & it is =
