Consider a sequence of seven consecutive integers. The average of the first five integers is n. The average of all the seven integers is [CAT 2000] 1) 2) 3) 4) n n+1 K n, where K is a function of n n + (2/7)

Solution: Average of first five integers is n. The integers are (n 2), (n 1), n, (n +1), (n + 2). The last two numbers are (n + 3), (n + 4). The average of the seven numbers = (7n + 7)/7 = n + 1 Hence, option 2. 2.

Three math classes; X, Y, and Z, take an algebra test. The average score in class X is 83. The average score in class Y is 76. The average score in class Z is 85. The average score of all students in classes X and Y together is 79. The average score of all students in classes Y and Z together is 81. What is the average for all three classes? [CAT 2001] 1) 2) 3) 81 81.5 82

4)

84.5

Solution: Let there be x number of students in class X, y number of students in class Y and z number of students in class Z. 83x + 76y = 79(x + y) 4x = 3y Similarly, 76y + 85z = 81(y + z) 4z = 5y 20x = 15y = 12z x :y :z=3 :4 :5 The average of all the three classes

Hence, option 2. 3.

A set of consecutive positive integers beginning with 1 is written on the blackboard. A student came along and erased one number.

Solution: Let there were n consecutive integers starting with 1 in the original set.

Average = 35, if n = 69 Average = 35.5, if n = 70 However, as the new average has 17 in the denominator, we can say that the number of numbers in the new set (n 1) is 68. n = 69

68 numbers that remained on the blackboard added up to 2408. The number that was erased was = 2415 2408 = 7 Hence, option 1.

A boy finds the average of 10 positive integers. Each integer contains two digits. By mistake, the boy interchanges the digits of one number say ba for ab. Due to this, the average becomes 1.8 less than the previous one. What was the difference of the two digits a and b? [CAT 2002] 1) 2) 3) 4) 4 2 6 8

Solution: Let the Arithmetic Mean of the 10 numbers be x and s be the sum of the remaining 9 numbers.

Ten years ago, the ages of the members of a joint family of eight people added up to 231 years. Three years later, one member died at the age of 60 years and a child was born during the same year. After another three years, one more member died, again at 60, and a child was born during the same year. The current average age of this eight member joint family is nearest to: [CAT 2007] 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 23 years 22 years 21 years 25 years 24 years

Solution: The sum of the ages of the members of the family ten years ago = 231 The sum of the ages of the members of the family seven years ago = 231 + (3 8) 60 = 195 The sum of the ages of the members of the family four years ago = 195 + (3 8) 60 = 159 The sum of the ages of the members of the family now = 159 + (4 8) = 191 Required average = 191/8 = 23.875 24 Hence, option 5.
