# Find the Alternative Number

The alternative mean of the following numbers

1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, and 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, is

- 4
- 5
- 14
- 20

**Answer: (2). 5**

The given observations are **1,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4,4,5,5,5,5,5,6,6,6,6,6,6,7,7,7,7,7,7,7.**

the mean is same as average. the number of observations is **28** and sum of the observations is **140.
**

**Average = sum of observations / total number of observations**

**Average = 140 / 28**

**Average = 5.**

**Alternative mean = average = 5**
