Re: Statistic Math problem

That's a pretty standard problem, isn't it? To find the average of "n" numbers, add them all up and divide by n.

Here, you are given "groups" but you should know that if the number 750 occurs 17 times then the sum of 750, 17 times, is 17(750).

"700 hours has stayed on 10 bulbs , 750 hours - 17 bulbs , 850 hours - 35 bulbs , 950 hours - 28 bulbs , 1000 hours - 10 bulbs."
Okay, the average is + (1000)(10)}{10+ 17+ 35+ 28+10}= \frac{86100}{100}= 861" /> hours.
