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

(1) Each of the integers is a multiple of 10

(2) The sum of the 5 integers is 160

1. The lowest integers that would work are 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 which give you an average of 30. A is sufficient.

2. 160/5 = 32 which is at least 30 so B is sufficient

does 0 ever count as a multiple of a number?

It does. for instance, how many multiples of 3 are there between -10 and 10?

There are 7 multiples of 3: -9,-6,-3 0 ,3, 6, 9

good to know. My answer is still D because it says 5 different positive integers, but that'll be useful in the future I'm sure.
