#### Solution

We have,

Number of students in a class = 40, and

Number of boys in a class = 14,

Mean of marks obtained by boys = 33, and

Mean of marks obtained by girls = 35

Number of girls in the class = 40 - 15 = 25

Sum of marks obtained by boys = 33 x 15 = 495 , and

Sum of marks obtained by girls = 35 x 25 = 875

So, the mean of all students in the class

= ` ( 495 + 875 ) / 40 ` = ` 1370 / 40` = 34.25
