OA is C

Range = 1 and Average = 4.75 implies that each digit is either a 4 or a 5.

Mandy,

Can you construct a set of integers whose range is 1 and average = 4.75 that has a number other than 4 or 5?

The arithmetic mean of the 16 digits in the credit card number is 4.75

=> the total of the 16 digits is: 16 x 4.75 = 76

The range is 1, => only 4 and 5 are allowed

suppose all of them are 4, then we get the total:

16 x 4 = 64 => so we cannot have all 16 digits being 4

76 - 64 = 12 => we need to have exactly 12 of them being 5

so that: 4x4 + 12x5 = 76 = 4.75 x 16

agree with C.
Another approach would be to see that the difference between 4 - 5 is 1 composed by 16 digits. Since the mean is 4.75 , this means that 75% of the digits are 5 and 25% are 4 ( thus 4 x 4 ) .
