    To take the average you add the two scores and divide by how many scores you added. The first test is 95 The second test is x because it is unknown We are averaging two tests. We need a 90 as an average. So \[\frac{ 95 + x }{ 2 } = 90\] Solve for x. That will be the score Jim needs

    okay so average is total sum over number of points of information so the average sum/number=90 sum = (95+B)/2=90 95+B=180 180-95+B B=85

    because if you get a bigger test number for the second test, you get a higher average

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95h7qAkz5QY Use x to represent the 2nd test, than solve by replacing numbers for x which would make the given equation true.
