Given,

Median = 46

Then, median class = 40-50

Therefore,

l = 40, h = 10, f = 65, F = 42 + x

Median = l + $\frac{\frac{N}{2}-F}{f}$

$46=40+\frac{115-(42+x)}{65}\times 10$

$\frac{6\times65}{10}=73-\times$

39 = 73 – x

x = 73 – 39

x = 34

Given,

N = 230

= 12 + 30 + 34 + 65 + y + 25 + 18 = 230

= 184 + y = 230

= y = 230 – 184 = 46

Mean = $\frac{\sum fx}{N}$

$=\frac{10550}{230}=45.87$
