Discrete Series : There is a difference
in the methods for finding the arithmetic means of the individual
series and a discrete series. In the discrete series, every term
(i.e. value of x) is multiplied by its corresponding frequency (fixi)
and then their total (sum) is found .
The arithmetic mean is then obtained by dividing the total frequency
the above sum so obtained
Therefore, if the observations x1 + x2 + x3 + .......+ xn are repeated f1 + f2 + f3 + ......+ fn times, then we have :
The formulae for Arithmetic mean by direct method and by the short-cut methods are as follows:
Direct method Short-cut method
and u = xi - A
