To solve this problem you must have an understanding of what an average is and know how to use the average formula.
To solve this problem:
The first step is to find the value of A or B. The problem tells you that the average of A + B equals 24; by using the average formula this means that A + B divided by 2 equals 24, or multiplying both sides by 2 gives you A + B equals 48. the average value of A or B equals 24.
The second step is to substitute 24 into the second average problem of (B) + C + D = 22; this means that 24 + C + D divided by 3 equals 22, or multiplying both sides by 3 gives 24 + C + D = 66. Subtracting 24 from each side now gives the following C + D = 42
The third step is to take the values of A + B which equals 48, and C + D which equals 42 and add them together; 48 + 42 = 90
I was thinking that "insufficient data" is the correct response. The ONLY data given is two equations: 1. (A+B)/2 = 24 2. (B+C+D)/3 = 22 This means that [3(A+B) + 2(B+C+D)]/6 = 46. That is 3A+5B+5C+2D=276, nothing more.
