1. The average weight of A, B and C is 45 kg. If the average weight of A and B be 40 kg and that of B and C be 43 kg, then the weight of B is:

Answer: 31 kg

Explanation:

Let A, B, C represent their respective weights. Then, we have:

A + B + C = (45 x 3) = 135

A + B = (40 x 2) = 80

B + C = (43 x 2) = 86

6. When a student weighing 45 kgs left a class, the average weight of the remaining 59 students increased by 200g. What is the average weight of the remaining 59 students

Answer: 57

Explanation:

Lets assume average weight of the 59 students = x kgs.
=> Total weight of the 59 = 59*x

Given when the weight of this student who left is added, the total weight of the class = (59x + 45)
The average weight decreases by 0.2 kgs, when these students included.
=> (59x+45)/60=(x-0.2)
=> (59x+45)= 60(x-0.2)
=> 59x + 45 = (60A - 12)
=> 45 + 12 = 60x - 59x
=> x = 57

7. In Arun's opinion, his weight is greater than 65 kg but less than 72 kg. His brother doest not agree with Arun and he thinks that Arun's weight is greater than 60 kg but less than 70 kg. His mother's view is that his weight cannot be greater than 68 kg. If all are them are correct in their estimation, what is the average of different probable weights of Arun?

Answer: 67 kg.

Explanation:

Let Arun's weight by X kg.
According to Arun, 65 < X < 72 -------(1)
According to Arun's brother, 60 < X < 70 ------ (2)
According to Arun's mother X <= 68 --------- (3)
The values satisfying all above 3 conditions are 66, 67 and 68.
so average = (66 + 67 + 68)/3 = 201/3 = 67 kg.

10. The average of 7 consecutive numbers is 20. The largest of these numbers is

Answer: 23

Explanation:

Let the first number be x,
So last number will be (x+6)

Average = [x+(x+1)+(x+2)+(x+3)+(x+3)+(x+4)+(x+5)+(x+6)]/7 = 20

=> (7x+21) = 20*7
=> 7x = 119
=> x = 17

So largest number= (x+6) = (17+6) = 23
