=154 cms.

Example 4:
In a  School of 8 student average weight is increased by 3.5 kg, when new student comes in place of one of them than weight become 55 kg, what would be the weight of the new student ?
Step 1: At first we find the total weight increased So, ( 8 X 3.5 )kg = 28 kg.
Step 2: Now the weight of new Student is = ( 55 + 28 )kg = 83 kg.
So, the weight of the new student is 83 kg.

Example 5:
In an examination it is required to get 34% of the aggregate marks to pass. A student gets 270 marks and is declared failed by 7% marks. What are the maximum aggregate marks a student can get ?
Step 1: 34% = 270 + 7%
Step 2: 27% = 270
Step 3: 100% = 270 x 100 / 27 = 1000 marks.

Example 6:
Rajan obtain 56, 75, 78, 86 and 88 marks out of 100 in Physics, Life Science, Mathematics, Biology, and Computer. What are her average marks ?
Step 1: Average of all subject marks 56 + 75 + 78 + 86 + 88 / 5
=383 / 5 = 76.6.

Example 7:
Find the average of all the numbers between 6 and 34 which are divisible by 5.
Step 1: 10 + 15 + 20 + 25 + 30 which are divisible by 5 in between 6 and 34
So average of number is 10 + 15 + 20 + 25 + 30 / 5 = 100 / 5 = 20.

Example 8:
There are two section X and Y of a College, consisting of 36 and 44 students respectively. if the average weight of section X is 40 Kg and that of section Y is 35 Kg. Find the average weight of the whole College (in Kg) ?
Step 1: At first the total ( X + Y ) college students are ( 36 + 44 ) = 80.
Step 2: college X total student weight and college Y total student weight is ( 36 x 40 + 44 x 35 ) = 2980
Average weight of the whole college is = 2980 / 80 = 37.25.

Example 9: The average of Six numbers is 49. If the average of first five numbers is 59, What is the value of the sixth number ?

So, the 6th number is ( 372 – 295 ) = 77.

Example 10:
Find the average of the following set of scores ?
357 , 854 , 214 , 648 , 478
2551 / 5
= 510.2
So the average of five numbers is 510.2.

Example 11:
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 ?
In a maths class 15 boys ages 18 years = ( 15 x 18 ) = 270
In a maths class 13 girls ages 15 years = ( 13 x 15 ) = 195
So average age of total maths class is =  270 + 195 / 28 = 465 / 28 = 16.607.

Example 12:
The average of 5 numbers is 4.5. If average of two number is 3.5 and that of another two numbers is 3.7, then what is the last number?
2 x 3.5 = 7
2 x 3.7 = 7.4
5 x 4.5 = 22.5
( 22.5 – 7.4 + 7 ) = 8.1
So the last number is 8.1.

Example 13:
The average of Five numbers is 62. The average of the second and the third number is 45. The average of the first and the fifth number is 66. What would be the fourth number ?
Average of Five numbers is = 62 x 5 = 310
Average of second and third number = 45 x 2 = 90
Average of first and fourth number = 66 x 2 = 132
( 132 + 90 ) = 222
The fourth number is ( 310 – 222 ) = 88.

Example 14: If the average of 8 numbers is 2.85. If the two number average is 2.3 and other two number average is 3.9, then Find the average of other two numbers ?

So the required age difference is = 40 years.

Example 17:
The average monthly income of A and B is Rs.6040. The monthly average income of B and C is Rs.7500 and monthly average income of A and C is Rs. 6500. Find the income of A in a monthly income ?
Step 1: here is ABC given respectively monthly income, hence we need to find both income.
( A + B ) = ( 6040 x 2 ) = 12080, ( B + C ) =( 7500 x 2 ) = 15000, ( C + A ) = ( 6500 x 2 ) = 13000
Step 2: If we add 3 income 2( A + B + C ) = 2 x ( 12080 + 15000 + 13000 ) = 40080 or A + B + C = 40080 / 2 = 20040.
Step 3: So we get the income of A Subtract income of ( A + B + C ) – ( B + C ) = (20040 – 15000 ) = 5040.5.

Example 18:
The average of 4 consecutive odd numbers P , Q , R , S is 66. What would be the product of P and S?
Average is 66
P Q R S
63 64 65 66 67 68 69
Product of ( P x S ) = ( 63 x 69 ) = 4347.

Example 19: In a office the average salary of employee is Rs.7000. The average salary of 6 office employee is Rs. 12,000 and the rest of employee salary is Rs.5000. Find the total number of employee in that office.
Answer: let the total number of employee is x, and average of all employee is
= 7000 = 7000x.
average salary of 6 employee is = 12,000 = 6 x 12,000 = 72,000.
So remaining average of employee is = 5000 X ( x – 6 ) = 5000x – 30,000
7000x = 72,000 + 5000x – 30,000
2000x = 42,000
x = 21.

Example 20:
A city center has an average of 610 visitors on Sunday and 340 on other days. The average  number of visitors per day  in a month of 30 days Beginning with a Sunday is.
Since the month begins with a Sunday, So there will be five Sundays in the month
= ( 610 x 5 + 340 x 25 ) / 30
= 3050 + 8500 / 30
=11550 / 30 = 385.

Example 21:
The average marks of first 54 group members is  62 and second 62 group members is 65, and third 48 group members is 70 respectively then, What would be the average marks of all the students ?
Step 1: At First we find the total students marks according with 3 group
= ( 54 x 62 ) + ( 62 x 65 )  + ( 48 x 70 ) = ( 3348 + 4030 + 3360 ) = 10738.
Step 2: Now we need to find average marks of all three groups is,
Total groups members are = ( 54 + 62 + 48 ) = 164.
the average marks of all the students = 10738 / 164 = 65.47.

Example 22:
The average marks in english subject of a class of 24 students is 56.If the marks of the students were misread as 44,45 and 60 of the actual marks 48, 59 and 66 respectively, then what would be the correct average ?
Answer: Average : 24×56(173-149)/24 = 57

Example 23: Ranjan’s monthly income is three-fifth rina’s monthly income. Rina’s monthly income is Rs.36,000/-. What is average monthly income of Ranjan and Rina together ?
36,000+21,600/2 = 28,800.

Example 24: The marks of six girls in a group are 149,158,189,137,178 and 161. What are the average marks of all six boys ?
Answer: average number = 149 + 158 + 189 + 137 + 178 + 161/6 = 972/6 = 162.

Example 25: A car covers the first 39kms. of its journey in 40 minutes and covers the remaining 26kms. in 35 minutes, What is the average speed of the car ?
Answer: 39+26 x 60/75 = 52km/hr

Example 26: The average speed of a bike is 9/4 times the average speed of a car. A tractor covers 598 km in 23 hours. how much distance will the bike cover in 4 hours if the speed of the car is twice speed of the tractor ?
Answer : speed of bike = 9 x speed of car /4
speed of tractor = 598 /23 = 26km/hr.
speed of car=52km/hr.
speed of bike = 52 x9/4 = 117
car covers distance in 1 hour.
4 hours covers = 117 x 4 = 468km.

Example 27:
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 ?
In a maths class 15 boys ages 18 years = ( 15 x 18 ) = 270
In a maths class 13 girls ages 15 years = ( 13 x 15 ) = 195
So average age of total maths class is =  270 + 195 / 28 = 465 / 28 = 16.607.

Example 28: If the average of 8 numbers is 2.85. If the two number average is 2.3 and other two number average is 3.9, then Find the average of other two numbers ?
22.8 – ( 4.6 + 7.8 ) / 2
= 22.8 – 12.4 / 2 = 5.2
the average of other two numbers 5.2.

Example 29: The average speed of a bike is 9/4 times the average speed of a  car. A bus covers 540km in 27 hours. How much distance will the bike cover in 5 hours, if the speed of the car is twice speed of the bus?
Solution :
Speed of bike = 9xspeed of car/4
speed of bus = 540/27 = 20km/hr
speed of car = 40km/hr
speed of bike = 40 x 9/4 = 90km/hr
distance covers by bike in 1hr = 90km
5 hrs = 90×5 = 450km.
