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

The average of 5 quantities is 6.

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

The average of the 3 of these 5 quantities is 8.

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

The sum of the remaining two quantities = 30 - 24 = 6.

Average of these two quantities = 6 / 2 = 3.

If a boat travels at a speed of 20 km per hour in stillwater. Now if it's travelling in downstream speed of 10 km per hour and travel 70 kilometre. What is the time taken by it?

Time= distance /speed

Sister boat is travelling in a downstream the speed of the stream adds up in the speed of boat so its speed=boat speed+downstream speed. which becomes 20+10=30 km/hr. Now applying the formula we get

Time=70/30 we get our answer which is 2.3

A test has 30 questions. If Ammy gets 70% correct, how many question did Ammy missed?

The number of correct answers is 70% of 30 or 70/100 x 30.

70/100 x 30 = 21

Since the test has 30 questions and she got 21 correct answers, the number of questions she missed is 30-21=9

Ammy missed 9 questions.
