SOLUTION

If x + y= 8z, then which of the following represents the average (arithmetic mean) of x, y, and z, in terms of z ?

(A) 2z + 1
(B) 3z
(C) 5z
(D) z/3
(E) 3z/2

The average of x, y and z equals to (x+y+z)/3 as x+y=8z then (x+y+)z/3=(8z+z)/3=9z/3=3z.

Option B.
Average of x,y and z=>(x+y+z)/3
x+y=8z(given)
Replacing we get,9z/3=3z
