**Question 1 : The daily rainfall for each day of a week in a certain city is given in millimeters. Find the average rainfall during the week. 9,11,8,20,10,16,12**

**Solution**:

Average rainfall during the week $=\frac{\text { sum of rainfall for each day of the week }}{\text { number of days }}$ $=\frac{9+11+8+20+10+16+12}{7}$

$=\frac{86}{7}$

$=12.285 \approx 12.29$

$\therefore$ The average rainfall during the week is 12.29

$\mathrm{mm}$

**Question 2 : During the annual function of a school, a Women's Self-help Group had set up a snacks stall. Their sales every hour were worth Rs 960 ,**

**$\mathrm{Rs} 830, \mathrm{Rs} 945, \mathrm{Rs} 800, \mathrm{Rs} 847, \mathrm{Rs} 970$ respectively. What was the average of the hourly sales?**

**Solution**:

Average hourly sales $=\frac{\text { sum of sales every hour }}{\text { number of hours }}$ $=\frac{960+830+945+800+847+970}{6}$

$=\frac{5352}{6}$

$=\operatorname{Rs} 892$

$\therefore$ The average of the hourly sales was Rs 892 .

**Solution:**

Average rainfall for 5 years $=\frac{\text { sum of annual rainfall in five years }}{\text { number of years }}$ $=\frac{900+650+450+733+400}{5}$

$=\frac{3133}{5}$

$=626.6$

$\therefore$ The average rainfall in Vidarbha for 5 years

was $626.6 \mathrm{~mm}$.

Average weight of the sacks $=\frac{\text { sum of weight of each sack }}{\text { number of sacks }}$ $=\frac{49.8+49.7+49.5+49.3+50+48.9+49.2+48.8}{8}$

$=\frac{395.2}{8}$

$=\frac{3952}{80}$

$=49.4$
