We request all visitors to read all examples carefully. These examples here will help you to better understand shortcut tricks on average methods.

First of all do a practice set on math of any exam. Then find out twenty math problems related to this topic and write those on a paper. Solve first ten math problems according to basic math formula. You also need to keep track of timing. After solving all ten math questions write down total time taken by you to solve those questions. Now practice our shortcut tricks on average methods and read examples carefully. After this do remaining ten questions and apply shortcut formula on those math problems. Again keep track of the time. The timing will be surely improved this time. But this is not all you need. If you need to improve your timing more then you need to practice more.

We all know that the most important thing in competitive exams is Mathematics. It doesn’t mean that other topics are not so important. But only math portion can leads you to a good score.

But it doesn’t mean that without using shortcut tricks you can’t do any math problems. You may have that potential that you may do maths within time without using any shortcut tricks. But so many people can’t do this. For those we prepared this average methods shortcut tricks. Here in this page we try to put all types of shortcut tricks on Average Methods. But we may miss few of them. If you know anything else rather than this please do share with us. Your little help will help so many needy.

Average Methods Example 5

The result obtained by adding several quantities together and then dividing this total by the number of quantities is called Average. This is the basic theory of average which applied in question to obtain answers here is Average Methods of example 5 and shortcut tricks in different form of examples.

This type of problem are given in Quantitative Aptitude which is a very essential paper in banking exam. Under below given some more example for your better practice.

Example #1

The average run of a cricket player of 8 innings was 34. How many runs must he make in his next innings so as to increase his average of runs by 6?

- 88 Runs
- 78 Runs
- 68 Runs
- 58 Runs

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (A)

**How to Solve**

The average runs of 9 innings would be ( 34 + 6 ) = 40 runs.

So, he needs ( 40 x 9 ) = 360 runs in 9 innings to make the average 40.

Right now in 8 innings he scored ( 34 x 8 ) = 272 runs.

**So, he Required (360 – 272 ) = 88 more runs to make his average 40.**

Example #2

The average of five consecutive odd numbers A, B, C, D, and E is 45. What is the product of A and D?

- 1843
- 1534
- 1824
- 1927

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (D)

**How to Solve**

A = 41

B = 43

C = 45

D = 47

E = 49

**So, the Product of A and D is = ( 41 x 47 ) = 1927.**

Example #3

In a shop, out of 9 persons, 8 persons spent Rs.30/- each for their shopping. The ninth one person spent Rs.20/- more than the average expenditure of all the nine. What is the total money spent by all of them?

- Rs.272.50/-
- Rs.299.75/-
- Rs.292.50/-
- Rs.283.50/-

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (C)

**How to Solve**

Let the average money spent be Rs.X, Then

9X = 8 x 30 + (X + 20 )

9X = X + 260

8X = 260

X = 32.50.

Total money spent by all is: 9X = 9 x 32.50 = 292.50.

Example #4

The average age of 15 boys is 18 years in the maths class and that of 13 girls is ages 15 years. What is the average age of total maths class?

- 15.410 Years
- 16.990 Years
- 16.607 Years
- 14.706 Years

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (C)

**How to Solve**

Total age of 15 boys ages 18 years = ( 15 x 18 ) = 270

Total age of 13 girls ages 15 years = ( 13 x 15 ) = 195

So, the average age of total maths class is

270 + 195 / 28

= 465 / 28

= 16.607.

Example #5

Four years ago, the average age of Rajesh and Suresh was 16 years. Now, with Dipika joining them, the average age becomes 24 years. How old Dipika now?

- 32 Years
- 30 Years
- 50 Years
- 42 Years

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (A)

**How to Solve**

Present age of ( Ramesh + Suresh ) = ( 16 x 2 + 4 x 2 ) = 40 years.

Present age of ( Ramesh + Suresh + Dipika ) = ( 24 x 3 ) = 72.

Dipika’s present age is ( 72 – 40 ) = 32 years.

Example #6

The average of five numbers is 63.8. The average of the first and second number is 39. The average of the fourth and the fifth number is 86. What is the third number?

- 45
- 69
- 49
- 59

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (B)

**How to Solve**

Sum of five number = ( 63.8 x 5 ) = 319

Sum of first and second number = ( 39 x 2 ) = 78

Sum of fourth and fifth number = ( 86 x 2 ) = 172

So, the third number is = 319 – ( 78 + 172 )

= 319 – 250

= 69.

Example #7

Find the average of this set of numbers given below?

437, 298, 781, 842, 642, 325, 245

- 510
- 502
- 515
- 525

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (A)

**How to Solve**

( 437 + 298 + 781 + 842 + 642 + 325 + 245 ) / 7

= 3570 / 7

= 510.

So, the average of this set of numbers is 510.

The average of 5 consecutive even numbers A, B, C, D, and E is 56. What is the product of A and C?

- 1922
- 2219
- 1229
- 2912

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (D)

**How to Solve**

A = 52

B = 54

C = 56

D = 58

E = 60

**So, the Product of A and C is = ( 52 x 56 ) = 2912.**
