Problem 30BSC

In Exercises, find the mean of the data summarized in the given frequency distribution. Also, compare the computed means to the actual means obtained by using the original list of data values, which areasfoüows: 44.1 years;.

 Age of Best Actor When Oscar Was Won Frequency 20–29 1 30–39 26 40–49 35 50–59 13 60–69 6 70–79 1

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Problem 30BSC

Step1 of 3:

We have the data summarized in the given frequency distribution.

 Age of Best Actor When Oscar Was Won Frequency 20–29 1 30–39 26 40–49 35 50–59 13 60–69 6 70–79 1

Step2 of 3:

We need to find the mean of the data summarized in the given frequency distribution. Also, compare the computed means to the actual means obtained by using the original list of data values, which areasfoüows: 44.1 years.

Step3 of 3:

Consider,

 Age of Best Actor When Oscar Was Won Frequency(f) x fx 20–29 1 24.5 24.5 30–39 26 34.5 897 40–49 35 44.5 1557.5 50–59 13 54.5 708.5 60–69 6 64.5 387 70–79 1 74.5 74.5 N=82 3649

Where x is the mid value of class intervals and it is calculated by  and so on..

The mean of the data summarized in the given frequency distribution is given by = = 44.5 years

This result is not substantially different from the mean of 44.1 found by using the original list of data values.
