# Find the Mean Deviation from the Mean for the Data:Size2021222324frequency64514 - Mathematics

Find the mean deviation from the mean for the data:

 Size 20 21 22 23 24 Frequency 6 4 5 1 4

#### Solution

 Size(xi) Frequency (fi) fi​xi $\left| x_i - \bar{x} \right|$$= \left| x_i - 21 . 65 \right|$ $f_i \left| x_i - x \right|$$= f_i \left| x_i - 21 . 65 \right|$ 20 6 120 1.65 9.9 21 4 84 0.65 2.6 22 5 110 0.35 1.75 23 1 23 1.35 1.35 24 4 96 2.35 9.4 $N = 20$ $\sum^n_{i = 1} f_i x_i = 433$ $\sum^n_{i = 1} f_i \left| x_i - x \right| = 25$

$\bar{x} = \frac{\sum^{n}_{i = 1} f_ix_i}{N} = \frac{433}{20} = 21 . 65$

$MD = \frac{1}{N} \sum^n_{i = 1} f_i \left| x_i - x \right| = \frac{1}{20} \times 25 = 1 . 25$
