Calculation:
The given ratios can be simplified further by doing cross product:
38=15a
3(a)=15(8)
3a=120
3a3=1203
a=40

Consider the accompanying data on flexural strength (MPa) for concrete beams of a certain type.
11.87.76.56.89.76.87.37.99.78.78.18.56.37.07.37.45.39.08.111.36.37.27.77.811.610.77.0
a) Calculate a point estimate of the mean value of strength for the conceptual population of all beams manufactured in this fashion. [Hint. ?xj=219.5.] (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
