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.
