(1) How many families use 45 units electricity?
(2) State the score, the frequency of which is 5.
(3) Find N, and sum f_ix_i
(4) Find the mean of electricity used by each family in the month of May.

#### Solution

The following table shows the electricity (in units) used by 25 families of Eklara village in a month of May. Complete the table and answer the following questions.

 Electricity used(units) x_i No. of Families(frequency) f_i f_ix_i 30 7 30 × 7 =  210 45 2 45 × 2 =  90 60 8 60 × 8 =  480 75 5 75 × 5 =  375 90 3 90 × 3 =  270 N =  25 sum f_ix_i =  1425

(1) 2 families use 45 units electricity.

(2) The score with a frequency of 5 is 75.

(3) N = 25, and sum f_ix_i= 1425
