There are three numbers. If the average of any two of them is added to the third number, the sums obtained are 177, 163 and 138. What is the average of the largest and the smallest of the given numbers?
Let the three numbers be x, y, z.
x+y / 2 + z =177
x + y + 2z = 354 …(1)
y+z / 2 +x = 163
2x + y + z = 326 …(2)
x+x/2+ y = 138
x + 2y + z = 276 …(3)
Adding eq(1),(2),(3) and dividing it by 4, we get
x + y + z = 239 ,,,(4)
sub (1) - (4), z = 115
sub (2) - (4), x = 87
sub (3) - (4), y = 37
The average of largest and smallest =
Hence option 4 is the correct answer.
