Q 5 There are four rain gauge stations existing in the catchment of a river. The average annual rainfall values at
. these stations are 800,620,400 & 540 mm resp. Determine the optimum number of rain gauges in the
. catchment, if it is desired to limit the error in the mean value of rainfall in the catchment to 10%. How
. many more gauges will then be required to be installed.
