The average of 5 quantities is 6. The average of 3 of them is 8. What is the average of the remaining two numbers?

1. 6.5
2. 4
3. 3
4. 3.5
5. 4.2

Answer – 3

The average of 5 quantities is 6.

Therefore, the sum of the 5 quantities is 5 * 6 = 30.

The average of three of these 5 quantities is 8

Therefore, the sum of these three quantities = 3 * 8 = 24

The sum of the remaining two quantities = 30 – 24 = 6

Average of these two quantities =6 / 2 = 3
