Average Methods Example 6
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.

Example #1
In an office, the average salary of an employee is Rs.7000/-. The average salary of 6 office employee is Rs.12000/- and the rest of the employee salary is Rs.5000/-. Find the total number of employee in that office.

How to Solve
Let, the total number of employee be X.
The average salary of all employee is ( 7000 x X ) = 7000X
Average salary of 6 employee is ( 12000 x 6 ) = 72000
So, the average of remaining employees are ( 5000 x ( X – 6 )) = 5000X – 30000
So, the total number of employees in that company is:
7000X = 72000 + ( 5000X – 30000 )
2000X = 42000
X = 21
So, total 21 employees are their in that company.

Example #2
The average of 5 consecutive even number P, Q, R, S and T is 42. What is the product of P and R?

1. 1596
2. 1569
3. 1759
4. 1796

How to Solve
P = 38
Q = 40
R = 42
S = 44
T = 46
So, the product of P and R is ( 38 x 42 ) = 1596.

Example #3
The average monthly income of A and B is Rs.6040/-. The monthly average income of B and C is Rs.7500/-. The monthly average income of A and C is Rs.6500/-. Find the monthly income of A?

1. Rs.5080/-
2. Rs.4080/-
3. Rs.5040/-
4. Rs.4050/-

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Monthly income of A and B together is ( A + B ) = ( 6040 x 2 ) = 12080
Monthly income of B and C together is ( B + C ) = ( 7500 x 2 ) = 15000
Monthly income of A and C together is ( A + C ) = ( 6500 x 2 ) = 13000
If we add 3 income 2( A + B + C ) = ( 12080 + 15000 + 13000 ) = 40080
or, A + B + C = 40080 / 2 = 20040.
So, the monthly income of A is ( A + B + C ) – ( B + C ) = (20040 – 15000 ) = 5040.

Example #4
The average of 5 numbers is 4.5. If the average of two number is 3.5 and that of another two numbers is 3.7, then what is the last number?

1. 3.7
2. 7.4
3. 7.9
4. 8.1

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Sum of all numbers is ( 5 x 4.5 ) = 22.5
Sum of first and second number is ( 2 x 3.5 ) = 7
Sum of third and fourth number is ( 2 x 3.7 ) = 7.4
So, the last number is ( 22.5 – ( 7.4 + 7 )) = 8.1.

Example #5
The average of 5 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?

1. 67
2. 88
3. 96
4. 75

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

How to Solve
Sum of all Five numbers is ( 62 x 5 ) = 310
Sum of second and third number is ( 45 x 2 ) = 90
Sum of first and fifth number is ( 66 x 2 ) = 132
So, the fourth number is ( 310 – ( 132 + 90 )) = 88.
