Require sum of 1+3+5+7+9….99
Applying formula for summation of n digits with a as first digit and d is the difference
sum = $\frac{n}{2} (2a + (n-1) d)$
or this formula can be reduced to $\frac{n}{2} \frac{a + l}{2}$hence for calculating avg. it will be
$\frac{a + l}{2}$ (where $l$ is last term)
so $\frac{1 + 99}{2}$ = 50

Let’s say numbers are $a, a+2, a+4$
So avg. will be $\frac{(a+a+2+a+4)}{3} = \frac{a}{3} +12$
Or a = 15
So numbers will be 15, 17, 19

As we know average of numbers which are in A.P. is = $\frac{a+l}{2}$ (where a is first term and l is last term)
Here a=3
and l= 27
Hence average will be 15

let his average of 10 matches = x

total runs in 10 matches = 10x

in 11th match he scored 100 runs, so

total runs after 11th match = 10x + 100

average of 11 matches = (10x+100)/11

after 11th match the average of his runs is increased by 5, so

(10x+100)/11 = x+5

10x+100 = 11x + 55

x = 45

but present average = x+5 = 45+5 = 50

so the answer is option C.

Let the 6 consecutive numbers be a-3,a-2,a-1,a,a+1,a+2

average = $\frac{SumofElements}{NumberofElements}$

It is given that average of 6 consecutive numbers be k and hence

k = $\frac{a-3+a-2+a-1+a+a+1+a+2}{6}$ = $\frac{6a-3}{6}$ = a – $\frac{1}{2}$

now next two numbers (a+3, a+4) are also added

Sum of 8 numbers = a-3+a-2+a-1+a+a+1+a+2+a+3+a+4 = 8a +4

average of 8 numbers = $\frac{8a+4}{8}$ = a + $\frac{1}{2}$ = k + 1

so average of 8 numbers is more than average of 6 numbers by = k+1 – K = 1

we know that average =$\frac {sum of elements}{numberof elements}$

Number of elements =7

Sum of elements = 7+11+15+14+21+25+x = 93+x

=> Average = $\frac {93+x}{7}$

=> 15 = $\frac {93+x}{7}$

=> x = 12

Let the total number of members in the institution be z

average = $\frac{SumofElements}{NumberofElements}$

Average salary of institution = Rs 60

total salary of Institution =Rs 60z

Given that out of z persons , there are 12 officers and there average salary is = Rs 400

and so total salary of 12 officers = 12 x 400 =Rs 4800

So total salary of other (z-12) members =Rs ( 60z – 4800 )…………..(1)

It is given that average salary of (z-12) persons = Rs 56

and hence from here the total salary of (z-12) people = Rs 56(z-12)……….(2)

Equation 1 and 2 are equal

60z – 4800 = 56z – 672

4z = 4128

z = 1032

Average = $\frac{Sum of Elements}{Number of Elements}$

Given that Initially Number of Elements = 50

Initial Average = 38

Sum of Elements = 50 x 38 = 1900

Now as two numbers are discarded, hence number of elements left = 48

Sum of elements after discarding numbers = 1900 – 55 – 45 = 1800

Hence New Average = $\frac{1800}{48}$ = 37.5

avg age of a,b,c = 84

$\frac{A+B+C}{3}$ = 84

A+B+C = 84*3 =252 ……………………(1)

similarly , $\frac{A+B+C+D}{4}$ = 80

A+B+C+D = 80*4 = 320

so using (1)

252 + D = 320

D = 68 i.e, E = 72 (as mentioned in the question)…………….(2)

$\frac{B+C+D+E}{4}$ = 78

B+C+D+E = 78*4 = 312

using (2)

B+C+68+72 =312

B+C = 172 ……………………………(3)

put (3) in (1)

A = 80

Given that average of 20 numbers = 15

using average = $\frac{Sum}{Numberof Elements}$

Sum of all numbers = 20 x 15 = 300

Average of first five numbers = 12

So sum of first five numbers = 12×5 = 60

Sum of numbers left = 300 – 60 = 240

Number of numbers left = 20 – 5 = 15

So average of left numbers = $\frac{240}{15}$ = 16

let the present age of Ram , Ram’s wife ,and his two children be R ,W,S1,S2 respectively

Average =$\frac{SumofAges}{Number of Ages}$

Given that average age of Ram and his childrens is =17 years

R+S1+S2= 17 × 3 = 51

Given R = 33 years .So, S2+S2 = 51-33 = 18 years

Now given that average age of Rams wife and two children = 16 years

So ,

W+S2+S1= 16×3=48

W= 48-18 =30 years

the average age of 14 girls and teacher is given as 15 and as we know

Average = $\frac {sum of ages}{number ofpersons}$

Sum of ages of girls and teachers = 15×15 =225 years

Now the age of teacher is excluded and as a result the average reduced by 1 .So

New average = 14

New number of persons = 14

Hence new sum of ages after exclusion of teacher = 14x 14 = 196

Hence age of teacher =225-196 = 29 years

Given that average age of 50 members = 38 years

So using , average = $\frac{SumofAge}{number of persons}$

Sum of ages = 50 x 38 = 1900

Now 45 and 55 are discarded and hence number of term left = 48

and Total Sum left = 1900 – 45 – 55 = 1800

New Average = $\frac{1800}{48}$ = 37.5

average age of 5 members = 33×5 = 165 years

given that youngest member has age = 9 years

so 9 years ago , youngest member was not present and for other 4 people, 9 years will be reduced from each person’ age and hence

total age of 4 members apart from the youngest one 9 years ago = 165- 9 – 36 = 120 years

average age when the youngest member was born = $\frac{120}{4}$

= 30 years

Given,A

Average of 50 students in a class = 64

Marks of two members were wrongly copied as 38 and 42 instead of 83 and 24.

Mean = $\frac{\text{Sum of all observations}}{\text{Number of Observations}}$

let the sum of all observations be x

According to the problem,

64 = $\frac{x}{50}$

$64×50$ = $x$

$x$ = 3200

Subtract the wrongly copied numbers from the total sum

= $3200 – (38+42)$

= $3200 – 80$

= $3120$

Now add the new numbers to the total sum

= $3120 + (83+24)$

= 3227

Thus, new sum is 3227

New Mean = $\frac{3227}{50}$ = 64.54

Therefore, new Mean = 64.54
