## Average Formula & Tricks

Average= (Sum of quantities)/(Number of quantities) /
• Average of two or more groups taken together

(a) If the number of quantities in two groups be n₁ and n₂ and their average is x and y, respectively, the combined average (average of all of them put together) is /

(n₁ x+n₂ y)/(n₁+n₂ )

(b) If the average of n₁ quantities is x and the average of n₂ quantities out of them is y, the average of remaining group (rest of the quantities) is –

(n₁ x-n₂ y)/(n₁ – n₂ )

Q. The average weight of 24 students of section A of a class is 58 kg whereas the average weight of 26 students of section B of the same class is 60.5 kg. Find the average weight of all the 50 students of the class.

Sol. Here n₁ = 24, n₂ = 26, x = 58 and y = 60.5.
∴ Average weight of all the 50 students
=(n₁ x+n₂ y)/(n₁+n₂ )
=(24×58+24×60.5)/(24+26)
=(1392+1573)/50=2965/50
= 59.3 kg

• The average of n quantities is equal to x. If one of the given quantities whose value is p, is replaced by a new quantity having value q, the average becomes y,  then
q = p + n(y – x)

Q. The average weight of 25 persons is increased by 2 kg when one of them whose weight is 60 kg is replaced by a new person. What is the weight of the new person?

Sol. The weight of the new person
= p + n(y – x)
= 60 + 25(2) = 110 kg

• The average of n quantities is equal to x. When a quantity is removed, the average becomes y. The value of the removed quantity is
n(x – y) + y.
• The average of n quantities is equal to y. When a quantity is added, the average will become y. The value of the new quantity is
n(y – x) + y.

Q. The average age of 24 students and the class teacher is 16 years. If the class teacher’s age is excluded, the average age reduces by 1 year. What is the age of the class teacher?

Sol. The age of class teacher
= n (x – y) + y
= 25 (16 – 15) + 15
= 40 years

• The average of first n natural numbers is
