Question : 1 [S.S.C. (CHSL) 2011]
The average of x numbers is y and average of y numbers is x. Then the average of all the numbers taken together is
a) $\text"x+y"/\text"2xy"$
b) $\text"2xy"/\text"x+y"$
c) $(x^2+y^2)/\text"x+y"$
d) $\text"xy"/\text"x+y"$
Answer »Answer: (b)
Sum of x numbers = xy
Sum of y numbers = xy
∴ Required average = ${xy+xy}/{x+y}$ = ${2xy}/{x+y}$
Aliter : Using Rule 10,
Here, $n_1$ = x, $a_1$ = y
$n_2$ = y, $a_2$ = x
∴ Average = ${n_1a_1+n_2a_2}/{n_1+n_2}$
= ${xy+yx}/{x+y}$ = ${2xy}/{x+y}$
Question : 2 [S.S.C. (CISF) 2011]
If average of 20 observations x_{1},x_{2}, ....., x_{20} is y, then the average of x_{1} – 101, x_{2} – 101, x_{3} –101, ....., x_{20} –101 is
a) y20
b) y101
c) 20y
d) 101y
Answer »Answer: (b)
${X_1 + X_2 + X_3 + X_4 + ..... + X_20}/20 = Y$
$X_1 + X_2 + X_3 + X_4 + ..... + X_20 = 20Y$
$= {X_1  101 + X_2  101 + X_3  101 + X_4  101 + ..... + X_20  101}/20$
$= (X_1 + X_2 + X_3 + X_4 + ..... + X_20)  20 x 101/20$
$\text"20Y  20 x 101"/20$
= Y  101
Question : 3 [S.S.C. (CHSL) 2011]
The average of $x$ numbers is $y^2$ and the average of $y$ numbers is $x^2$. So the average of all the numbers taken together is
a) $(x^3+y^3)/\text"x+y"$
b) $xy$
c) $(x^2+y^2)/\text"x+y"$
d) $xy^2+yx^2$
Answer »Answer: (b)
According to the question,
Average of x number is y^{2}
∴ Sum of x number is = xy^{2}
Average of y number is = x^{2}
∴ Sum of y number is = yx^{2}
Average of all number is
= ${xy^2+yx^2}/{x+y}$
= ${xy(x+y)}/{x+y}$
= xy
Question : 4 [S.S.C. (CGL) 2016]
In a class, average height of all students is ‘a’ cms. Among them, average height of 10 students is ‘b’ cms and the average height of the remaining students is ‘c’ cms. Find the number of students in the class. (Here a > c and b > c )
a) $(a(bc))/(ac)$
b) $(bc)/(ac)$
c) $(bc)/\text"10(ac)"$
d) $\text"10(bc)"/(ac)$
Answer »Answer: (d)
Let the total number of students in the class be n.
According to the question,
an = 10 × b + (n – 10) c
⇒ an = 10b + nc – 10c
⇒ an – cn = 10b – 10c
⇒ n (a – c) = 10 (b – c)
$⇒ n =\text"10 (b  c )"/ ( a  c )$
Question : 5 [S.S.C. (CGL) 2015]
Average of n numbers is a. The first number is increased by 2, second one is increased by 4, the third one is increased by 8 and so on. The average of the new numbers is
a) $a+(2^(n1)1)/n$
b) $a+2(2^n1)/n$
c) $a+2^(n1)/n$
d) $a+(2^n1)/n$
Answer »Answer: (b)
Sum of new numbers
= na + (2 + 4 + 8 + 16 ..... to n terms)
Now, S = 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 + ..... to n terms
Here, a = first term = 2
r = common ratio = $4/2$ = 2
It is a geometric series.
∴ S =${a({r^n}  1)}/{r1}$= ${2({2^n}  1)}/{21}$
= 2 ($2^n$ –1)
∴ Required average
= ${na +2({2^n}1)}/n$
a +${2({2^n}1)}/n$
