Nobody's gonna provide you a full working code for you, you should write it yourself.This site does help those who "help themselves".
What do you "mean" by "grouped data"?
Have you started yet or you're hoping that someone here will give you the code(not even knowing what you actually want),if the case is latter you're gonna be very disappointed.
In the former case, you might post next time with the exact questions(of where you're stuck in your program and with what exactly you need help with).

sample mean; grouped data is arranged and more likely to be tabular. actually i have started but i'm stuck with frequency distribution and i barely can't find it so i ask assistance for anyone here. so you may want to see my codes? after all thank you sir for your comment.

arx is array
n is number of scores
ls is lowest score
hs is highest score
cs is class size
arhigh is upper limit
arlow is lower limit
arcm is class mark

It's a good thing that you posted your code, but you should compile it first to see if there are any typing errors or syntax mistakes.Here I have posted your code with some corrections.There are comments in each corrected line so you can easily match it with your original code to see where the mistakes were.
You'd better not use the non standard header "conio.h",since it is not portable.getchar() will do same thing as getch(),except you may have to press an extra <enter> key to get the job done.

#include<conio.h>//don't use this header

Forgive me if I'm confused, but from the look of your code, you should be well aware of how to calculate the mean from an array (I assume you're talking about the arithmetic mean):

#include <math.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>

#define N 50

double mean(int a[], int n)
{
    int sum = 0;
    
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        sum += a[i];
        
    return (double)sum / n;
}

double standard_deviation(int a[], int n, double mean)
{
    double variance = 0;
    
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        int diff = a[i] - mean;
        
        variance += (diff * diff);
    }
    
    variance /= n;
    
    return sqrt(variance);
}

int main(void)
{
    int a[N];
    
    srand((unsigned)time(NULL));
    
    for (int i = 0; i < N; i++)
        a[i] = rand() % N;
    
    double avg = mean(a, N);

    printf("Mean:               %f\n", avg);
    printf("Standard Deviation: %f\n", standard_deviation(a, N, avg));
}

I also threw in the standard deviation, because that tends to go hand in hand with the mean.

it is okay. yes it is the arithmetic mean i was pointing out. thank you for your effort, it is really a big help. i'll now analyze your codes. :)
