#### Question

The calculated mean of 50 observations was 80. It was later discovered that observation 19 was recorded by mistake as 91. What was the correct mean?

#### Solution

It was later discovered that observation 19 was recorded by mistake as 91. What was the correct mean?
We have,
The calculated mean of 50 observations was 80.
The total incorrect sum of the observations = 80 x 50 = 4000The total correct sum of the observations = 4000 - 19 + 91 = 4072
So, the correct mean = 4072/50 = 81.44
