**Q 11 . If M is the mean of x _{1},x_{2},x_{3},x_{4},x_{5 }and x6_{ }, Prove that **

**(x _{1}−M)+(x_{2}−M)+(x_{3}−M)+(x_{4}−M)+(x_{5}−M)+(x_{6}−M) = 0.**

**SOLUTION :**

Let M be the mean of x_{1},x_{2},x_{3},x_{4},x_{5 }and x_{6}

= x_{1}+x_{2}+x_{3}+x_{4}+x_{5}+x_{6} = 6M

**To Prove :-** (x_{1}−M)+(x_{2}−M)+(x_{3}−M)+(x_{4}−M)+(x_{5}−M)+(x_{6}−M) = 0.

**Proof :-** L . H . S

= (x_{1}−M)+(x_{2}−M)+(x_{3}−M)+(x_{4}−M)+(x_{5}−M)+(x_{6}−M)

= (x_{1}+x_{2}+x_{3}+x_{4}+x_{5}+x_{6})−(M+M+M+M+M+M)

= 6M – 6M

= 0

= R . H . S

**Q 12 . Duration of sunshine(in hours) in Amritsar for first 10 days of August 1997 as reported by the Meterological Department are given as follows : 9.6 , 5.2 , 3.5 , 1.5 , 1.6 , 2.4 , 2.6 , 8.4 , 10.3 , 10.9**

**1. Find the mean **

**2.Verify that **

**SOLUTION :**

Duration of sunshine (in hours ) for 10 days are =9.6 , 5.2 , 3.5 , 1.5 , 1.6 , 2.4 , 2.6 , 8.4 , 10.3 , 10.9

= 56/10 = 5.6

= (9.6−5.6)+(5.2−5.6)+(3.5−5.6)+(1.5−5.6)+(1.6−5.6)+(2.4−5.6)+(2.6−5.6)+(8.4−5.6)+(10.3−5.6)+(10.9−5.6)

= 4 – 0.4 – 2.1 – 4.1 – 4 – 3.2 – 3 + 2.8 + 4.7 + 5.3

= 16.8 – 16.8 = 0

= R.H.S
