  4. 4. Question No 1 <ul><li>If a sample size of 22 items has a mean of 15 and another sample size of 18 items has a mean of 20. Find the mean of the combined sample? </li></ul>
  5. 5. Class work <ul><li>The mean annual salary paid to all employees of a company was Rs.5000. The mean annual salary paid to male and female employees were Rs.5200 and Rs.4200 respectively. Determine the percentage of males and females employed by the company </li></ul>

  11. 11. Summary <ul><li>The mean is used in computing other statistics (such as the variance) and does not exist for open-ended grouped frequency distributions. It is often not the most appropriate measure for skewed (unbalanced) distributions such as salary information. </li></ul>
