Word Problem 11: The average of two numbers is XY.If one number is equal to X ,the other number is equal to_________?

a). X                        b). 2Y                                c). XY-X                         d). 2 XY – X

Solution:

 

We know the average of a given number of terms is calculated by dividing the sum of terms by their number.

There are two numbers and one number is given as X

We suppose the other number is Y

then their sum = X+Y

their number (number of terms) = 2

so,

\[ Average= \frac{X+Y}{2} \]

But the average is XY (given)

So,

\[ XY=\frac{X+Y}{2} \]

Hence,

\[ 2XY=X+Y \]

\[ Y=2XY-X \]

So option d is correct!
