A. $420
B. $440
C. $450
D. $460
E. $480


D. $460 is my answer.

400 = x/10
x = 4000

For first 6 days = 360 * 6 = $2160

therefore for the last 4 days revenue is $4000 - $2160 = 3840
hence, airthmatic mean = 3840/4 = $460

Please let me know the OA.
Also, I am very bad in explaining things. I am waiting for Bunuel to respond.
He is extremly good in explaining solution.

The average revenue was $400 per day over a 10-day period --> total revenue over 10-day period is 10*$400=$4,000;

The average daily revenue was $360 for the first 6 days --> total revenue for the first 6 days is 6*$360=2,160;

Total revenue for the last 4 days is $4,000-2,160=$1,840;

Average daily revenue for the last 4 days is $1,840/4=$460.

Answer: D.

I solved it in another way, but not sure whether its correct. Can some one help me by validating..
Let 'x' be the average daily revenue for last 4 days.
[6(360)+4(x)]/10 = 400
solving, x = 460

Thanks in advance

weighted average

total 10 days, avg10 of this period is 400
first 6 days avg6 is 360 which is deltaAvg6 = 40 away from the overall avg10
last 4 day avg4 must have more weight to pull the avg10 to 400
(if 5 days-5 days then last 5 must have 440 so that avg10 is pulled back to 400, but this is 6/4, so we know last 4 days avg must have much more weight, so avg4 > 440, eliminate few choices)

since ratio of weight of 2 periods is 6/4 = 3/2, the avg4 must compensate for the loss of deltaAvg6 a 3/2 amount of deltaAvg6 so that the avg10 is pulled back to 400. therefore the last 4 days must have deltaAvg4 = 3/2 * deltaAvg6 = 3/2 * 40 = 60.
so avg4 = 400 + deltaAvg4 = 400 + 60 = 460 --> D

460
400 x 10= 4000
360 x 6 = 2160
4000-2160 = 1840/4=460

Bunuel's way of solving is definitely the most straight forward one; thanks!

Ans:
the total revenue for 10 days is 10x400=4000 and the total revenue for first 6 days is 6x360=2160, so the average for last 4 days will be (4000-2160)/4 = 460 (D).

(400-360)*6/4=60
400+60=460
