 ### Quantitative Aptitude Topic of the day: Averages

Averages questions are quite easy to attempt if the concepts are clear.

Suppose there are N numbers, then their average is their sum divided by that is,

Average=(sum / N)

Weighted Average: The average between two sets of numbers is closer to the set with more numbers.
if 3 batsmen scored 25 runs and 2 batsmen scored 35 runs the average of the team won’t be 30. Rather it will be
= (25×3 + 35×2 )/5 = 29 . This is nearer to 25 since more batsmen scored 25 runs.

Wow Raj all your answers are correct except for the second question. The second answer isnt correct. I believe it should be 61. i.e. option b

This age of the class teachers=31 x 31 – 30 x 30 = 61 years

5. The average of first 99 even numbers = (2+4+ 6+…..+198)/99 = 100

Use an AP sum to solve the problem = (n/2)(a + l) = 99/2 (2+198) = 9900 => 9900/99 = 100.
