**Q) The monthly expenditure on milk in 200 families of a Housing Society is given below: **

**Find the value of x and also find the mean expenditure**

**Ans: **

**(i) Value of X:**

To calculate the value of X, we first sum up all the frequencies:

Here, from 2nd column, we get total number of families = 172 + X

In the question, it is given that the total number of families = 200

∴ 172 + X = 200

∴ X = 200 – 172 = 28

**Therefore, the value of X is 28.**

**(ii) Mean value of expenditure:**

To find the mean value, we put X = 28 in the table and rearrange the data:

To re-arrange the above data, we take the following steps:

- We calculate midpoint ‘x’ of each class by
- Then we calculate ‘fx’ by multiplying midpoint of each class with frequency of that class
- We calculate Σf by summing up all the frequencies and Σfx by adding up all the values of fx

Next, we know that, mean of grouped data is given by:

Mean of grouped data =

Therefore, Mean value = = 2,662.50

**Hence, the mean value of the given data is 2,662.50**
