Toolbox:
  • The formula used for the problem are Mean $ \bar(x)=\large\frac{\sum x_i}{n}$
  • $SD= \sqrt {\large\frac{\sum x^2}{n} - \bigg( \large\frac{\sum x}{n}\bigg)^2}$
Given $\bar x =50$
$SD= 5$
$h= 100$
$\sigma =5 $
$\sigma^2 =25$
$\sigma^2=\large\frac{\sum x^2}{n} - \bigg( \large\frac{\sum x}{n}\bigg)^2$
$25= \large\frac{\sum x_i^2}{100} $$-50^2$
$\large\frac{\sum x_i^2}{100}$$=25 + 50^2$
$\qquad= 25+ 2500$
$\qquad= 2525$
$\sum x_i^2 =2525 \times 100 =252500$
Hence C is the correct answer.
