Problem 5: The average weight of 5 men is increased by 1 kg, when one of them whose weight is 60 kgs, is replaced by a new man. What is the weight of the new man?

a) 64 kgs                  b) 65 kgs                   c) 50 kgs                  55 kgs

Solution:

Let there be 5 men whose weights are m1, m2, m3, m4 and 60. Let their average weight be ‘x’;

Now let the man weighing 60 kg is replaced by a man whose weight is ‘M’. As per condition average weight now becomes x+1;

Put value of m1+m2+m3+m4 from eq(1);

So, the weight of new man is 65 kg
