 Question 477233: Hi! Please, I would so appreciate some help with this problem! The mean salary of 8 employees is \$27,850, and the mean salary of 10 others is \$31,600. Find the mean salary of the 18 employees. (Round answer to the nearest cent.) ???Answer by robertb(4012)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let E = sum of the salaries of the 8 employees, and T = sum of the other 10 employees' salaries. ==> E/8 = 27,850, and T/10 = 31,600 ==> E = 222,800, and T = 316,000 ==> sum of salaries of all employees is E + T = 538,800 ==> mean salary for all 18 employees is (E + T)/18 = 538,800/3 = 29,933.33.
