Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can write down 3 equations if that helps \[\frac{A+C+D}{3}=52\] \[\frac{A+D}{2}=61\] \[\frac{D+C}{2}=44\] and see if we can find what each of them are

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or maybe we can just think. since \[\frac{A+D}{2}=61\] that means \[A+D=121\] so \[\frac{A+C+D}{3}=\frac{C+121}{3}=52\] and so \[C+121 = 3\times 52=156\]therefore \[C=156121=35\]
