0 is multiple of all numbers but is not +ve. so we cannot consider it as a +ve multiple of 10 here.

D.
from i, the sum of the five different integers is 150. so the ave is at least 30. suff

from ii, if the sum of 5 numbers is 160, then their average is more than 30. suff.

Agree with (D).

he fact that 0 is a multiple of all integers will most likely not be tested on the GMAT.

What I meant was that, they do have problems where they use test:
'0 as a multiple of a number'

Why do we say that -

10 is also multiple of 10. So the minimum will be 10+10+10+10+10 = 50... How do we get 150? :roll:

St1:
If the 5 integers are 10,20,30,40 and 50, then ave = 30. Since this is the smallest valid set of integers, so st1 is sufficient.

St2:
The average is alwasy 32. St2 is sufficient.

I made the mistake of "at least", being different than "greater than"

Where at least means >= 30

But greater than means > 30

Crap!

1. Each of the integers is a multiple of 10.

2. The sum of 5 integers is 160.

My question is, is 0 multiple of 10?


D,

Sum >=150 ?

1) Min possible sum: 10+20+30+40+50=150 or more SUFF
2) 160 is more than 150. SUFF.

Is the average (arithmetic mean) of 5 different positive integers at least 30?

It's almost always better to express the average in terms of the sum. The question basically asks whether the sum of 5 different positive integers is at least 5*30=150.

(1) Each of the integers is a multiple of 10 --> the least values of these 5 different positive integers are: 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 --> the sum = 150. Sufficient.

(2) The sum of the 5 integers is 160. Directly answers the question. Sufficient.

Answer: D.
