There are 2 samples of 500 people each → that's 1000 people altogether who responded to the survey. Add up the total number for each response, so 60 + 70 = 130 people said they work 6 hours. Then 90 + 80 = 170 people said they worked 7 hours, and so on. The mean is each person's response divided by the total amount of responses. It would take too long to add up 6 hours 130 times, so we multiply 6*130 and do the same for each response. \[\frac{ 6(60+70)+7(90+80)+8(145+140)+9(150+145)+10(55+65) }{ 1000 }\]
