    \sf\green{The\:correct\:answer\:is\:option\:B\:7.2}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given :

    Mean of a set of 8 observations is 10

    4 is the mean of a set of 7 observations

    To Find :

    The

    Themean of the combined set is given by:

    Solution :

    \sf{let\:the\:1^st\:mean\:be\:x_1}

    \sf{let\:the\:2^nd\:mean\:be\:x_2}

    &

    \sf{let\:the\:1^st\:no.\:of\:observations\:be\:w_1}

    \sf{let\:the\:2^nd\:no\:of\:observations\:be\:w_2}

    \sf{x\:=\:\frac{x_1 w_1\:+\:x_2 w_2}{w_1\:+\:w_2}}

    \sf{\frac{10\:\times\:8\:+\:7\:\times\:4}{7\:+\:3}}

    \sf{\frac{80\:+\:28}{8\:+\:7}}

    \sf{\cancel\frac{108}{15}\:7.2}

    \sf{7.2}
