A sample of 12 measurements has a mean of 34 and a standard deviation of 4.5. Suppose that the sample is enlarged to 14 measurements, by including two additional measurements having a common value of 34 each.

A. Find the mean of the sample of 14 measurements.

    Mean will remain unchanged as 34. but if the new values are different new mean will be computed as

    12(34)+2(34)
    -------------
    12+2

    476/14
