To find out the missing frequency, use the mean formula.

Here, the value of mid-point (x

_{i}) mean x̄ = 18The mean formula is

Mean = x̄ = ∑f

_{i}x_{i}/∑f_{i }= (752+20f)/(44+f)Now substitute the values and equate to find the missing frequency (f)

⇒ 18 = (752+20f)/(44+f)

⇒ 18(44+f) = (752+20f)

⇒ 792+18f = 752+20f

⇒ 792+18f = 752+20f

⇒ 792 – 752 = 20f – 18f

⇒ 40 = 2f

⇒ f = 20

So, the missing frequency, f = 20.
