New mean is 15.

Explanation:

Let the five observations are x₁ , x₂ , x₃ , x₄ , x₅.

According to the question,

Mean = 10

Number of observations = 5

Sum of observations = x₁ + x₂ + x₃ + x₄ + x₅

We know ( formula ),

Mean = ( sum of observations ) / number of observations

Hence,

= >  10 = ( x₁ + x₂ + x₃ + x₄ + x₅ ) / 5

= >  50 = x₁ + x₂ + x₃ + x₄ + x₅   …( i )

When each observation of the data is increased by 5 : –

Sum of observations = x₁ + 5 + x₂ + 5 + x₃ + 5 + x₄ + 5 + x₅ + 5

= >  Mean = ( x₁ + 5 + x₂ + 5 + x₃ + 5 + x₄ + 5 + x₅ + 5 ) / 5

= >  Mean = ( x₁ + x₂ + x₃ + x₄ + x₅ + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 ) / 5

From ( i ) , substituting the value of x₁ + x₂ + x₃ + x₄ + x₅,

= >  Mean = ( 50 + 25 ) / 5

= >  Mean = 75 / 5

= >  Mean = 15

Therefore the new mean is 15.
