Given:

Thirty women were examined in a hospital by a doctor and the number of heartbeats per minute was recorded. 

To do:

We have to find the mean heartbeats per minute for the women.

Solution:

Let the assumed mean be $A=75.5$

We know that, Mean $=A+h \times \frac{\sum{f_iu_i}}{\sum{f_i}}$    

Therefore,  

Mean $=75.5+3\times\frac{4}{30}$

$=75.5+\frac{4}{10}$

$=75.5+0.4$

$=75.9$

The mean heartbeats per minute for the women is $75.9$.
