We are going to talk about the very important arithmetic formulae on average, which are very helpful for all types of competitive exams.

# AVERAGE PROBLEM-SOLVING TRICKS 1). If the number of the quantities and their sum is given, the average is given by = 2). If the no. of the quantities and its average is given then the sum of the quantities is = 3). If the sum and its average is given then the no. of the quantities is = 4). If the average of A boys is x, and the average of B-girls is y, if all of them is put together, then the average is = 5). If the average of A boys is x, and the average of B-boys out of A boys is y then the average of the rest of boys is = 6). If the average of A objects is x if any object is removed from the list then average become y then the magnitude of the removed object is = 7). If the average of A no. is a, if x is added or subtracted from each no. then the average becomes = 8). If the average of A quantities is x, and if a new quantity is added then average become y, then the added new quantity is = 9). If the average of A no. is x, then if each no. is multiplied or divided by y then, the average becomes = 10). If the average weight of A person is increased by x kg if one person of weight, y kg is replaced by a new person, then the weight of the new person is = *If the average is decreasing then the weight of the new person is = 11). The average marks obtained by A candidates in a certain examination is m if the average marks of the passed candidate are n, and the fail candidate is o, then the no of candidates who passed the exam is =  12). If the average of n odd numbers is ‘a’, and the average of first number is ‘b’ if last number is ‘c’ then the th no. is = 13). If a batsman in n innings makes a score of x, and the average is increased by y, then average after n innings is = 14). If a batsman has an average of x runs after the completion of n innings. Then no of runs he has to make to raise his average to y is = 15). If a person travels a distance with x km/h, and again travels the same distance with y km/h, then the average speed for the whole journey is = * If half of the distance is traveled by x km/h and the other half distance is traveled by y km/h then the average for the whole journey is = * If person goes with x km/h and return with y km/h then average speed is = 16). If a person travels three equal distances with x km/h, y km/h, and z km/h then the average speed for the whole journey is = 17). If a person travels A km by x km/h, B km by y km/h, and C km by z km/h then the average speed for the whole journey is = 18). A person travels Ath part of a distance with x km/h, Bth part of the distance with y km/h, and Cth part with z km/h then average speed for the whole journey is = * If Ath, Bth, and Cth part of the distance is given as A%, B%, and C% then formula change to the average speed of = 19). The average value of all the members of a group is x if the first part of members has an average of y, and the average of the remaining parts of members is z and no. of members in the first part is n then no. of members is remaining part = * If n is the no. of members in the remaining part then the no. of members in the first part is = 20). The average of first n natural number is = 21). The average of n consecutive number is the middle number

22). The average of even n consecutive numbers is the average of the middle two numbers.

* The average of two middle number is calculated as follows:
** In case of consecutive numbers-
Average = smaller middle number +0.5 or greater middle number -0.5

** In case of consecutive odd and consecutive even-
Average = smaller middle number +1 or greater middle number -1

23). The average of odd number from 1 to n, (where n is a natural odd number) is = 24). The average of even natural number from 1 to n is = 25). The average of the square of natural number till n is = 26). The average of cubes of natural number till n is = 27). The average of the first n consecutive even number is = 28). The average of the first n consecutive odd number is =n

29). The average of squares of first n consecutive even number is = 30). The average of squares of even number till n is = 31). The average of squares of consecutive odd number till n is = 32). The average of n numbers is A , and rechecking it is find that some of the numbers that is are taken wrongly as then the correct average is = 33). The average of a series having a common difference 2 is = 34). If the average of n consecutive odd numbers is x, then the difference between the largest and smallest number is = 35). If P distance is travelled by x km/h, Q distance with y km/h, R distance with z km/h, then average speed for whole journey is = 36). The average weight of a group of X members is y if after entering or exiting of a member, the average weight become z, then the weight of entering or exiting person is = 37). The average weight of a group of x person is y when z person get enter/exit in the group, the average of the group become w, then the average of new entering/exiting persons is = 38). In the group of x persons, if a t years old person is replaced by a new person, then the average is increased/ decreased by t1, then the age of a new person is = 39). The average of n multiple of any number is = For more such tricks articles stay tuned with Laws Of Nature
