**Answers :**

1. Required average = 7(1+2+....+21) / 21

= (7/21)X ( (21x22) / 2 ) (because sum of first 21 natural numbers)

= 77

2. Total age of 50 students

= (30X 13+20 X 12) = 630

Average = 630/50 = 12.6 Years

3. The total of seven numbers = 7X18 = 126

The total of first 3 and last 3 numbers is = 3 X 14+3 X 19 = 99

So, the middle number is (126 - 99 ) = 27

4. Total age of students is 32X16 = 512 Years

Total age inclusive of teacher = 33X (16+1) = 561

So, Teacher's age is 561-512 = 49 Yrs

**There is a shortcut for these type of problems :**

**Teacher's age is 16+(33X1) = 49 Years :)**

5. Actual total weight is (20X 58.4 - 56 + 65) = 1177 Kgs

Actual average weight is 1177/20 = 58.85kgs

6. Let the average weight of 8 persons be 'x'

years and the age of the new person be 'y' years

so, (8x - 65 + y) / 8 = x+1.5

so, y = 77kgs

**Shortcut :**65 + 8X1.5 = 77kgs
7. MOn + Tue + wed Temperature = 3X36.3 = 108.9

Tue + wed Temperature = 108.9 - 39 = 69.9

Tue + wed + Thu temperature = 3X36.7 = 110.1

So, Thursday's temperature = 110.1 - 69.9 = 40.2 degrees C

8. Total expenditure for the first 3 months = 3X1600 = 4800

Total expenditure for 4 months = 4X1550 = 6200

Total expenditure for 5 months = 5X1800 = 9000

Total expenditure and saving (which is income for one year)

= 4800 + 6200 + 9000 + 5200 = Rs. 25200

So, Average monthly income = 25200/12 = Rs. 2100

9. Let the original expenditure be Rs.x

Original average expenditure = X/45

New average expenditure = (x+39)/52

So (x/45) - ((x+39) / 52) = 1 so x = 585

so, original expenditure is Rs 585

10. The total present age of father and two sons is 3S27 = 81 yrs

The total present age of sons is (12+5) X 2 = 34Years

so, present age of father is 81 - 34 = 47 yrs
