### Please check the question:
Question should be:
Find the value of p if the mean of the following distribution is 20.
x
15
17
19
20+p
23
f
2
3
4
5p
6

Solution:
Let us construct the following table:
x
f

15
2
30
17
3
51
19
4
76
20+p
5p

23
6
138

Given that mean is 20
We know that

x | 15 | 17 | 19 | 20+p | 23 |

f | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5p | 6 |

x | f | |

15 | 2 | 30 |

17 | 3 | 51 |

19 | 4 | 76 |

20+p | 5p | |

23 | 6 | 138 |
