The number of puppies in a litter and the corresponding frequency is given. To determine the mean number of puppies in a litter, determine the total number of puppies and divide the sum by the total number of litters.

`[[Number, Frequency, ], [3, 6, 18],[4,12, 48],[5,23,115],[6, 20, 120],[7, 18, 126],[8,12, 96],[9,9, 81]]`

The total number of puppies is 604. As the total number of litters is 100, there are 6.04 puppies per liter.

**The mean number of puppies in a litter is 6.04**
