1. If you want the mean salary, you can only get an approximate value since you only have histogram data (the number per salary interval). Assume that the number 16 applies to a salary at the midpioit of the first interval (\$7500), etc.

The mean will be
(16*7500 + 15*12500 + 11*(17,500) + 15*22500 + 23*27,500)/(16+15+11+15+23) = \$18,375
