## Inopeki 3 years ago Can someone give me an example in averages so i can try to solve it?

1. fewscrewsmissing

Today, meverett04 was awarded 567 medals, FoolForMath 501, TuringTest 398 and fewscrewsmissing 6. What was the average of medals awarded amongst these people?

2. meverett04

find the average: 4, 7, 7, 2 Add them up 4 +7 +7+2 = 20 Divide by the number of numbers, that is 4 20/4 = 5 5 is the answer. You try one -1, 0, 2, 5, 4

3. Inopeki

567+501+398+6=1472 1472/4=368 was the average of how many medals that were handed out today.

Nice!

5. fewscrewsmissing

Very good =) If the average is 70, find the missing number: 19, 112, 94, ?

6. fewscrewsmissing

No luck?

7. Inopeki

Oh, im sorry, iwas in theshower

8. Inopeki

Ill give it a try

9. Inopeki

19+112+94+x ------------- = 70, right? 4

10. fewscrewsmissing

Yus! High fives all around.

11. Inopeki

But wait, im not done yet.

12. Inopeki

70*4=280 19+112+94=225 280-225=55! 55=the missing number for the equation to become 19+112+94+55 ------------- = 70 4

13. fewscrewsmissing

Oh right. Haha sorry, I looked at what you said before and saw it immediately so took it to be solved, forgot we were trying to work it out... But NOW high fives all round! It is indeed 55.

14. Inopeki
