The average( arithmetic mean) of daily maximum temperature at a certain water station from July 1 to July 19 was 5 degrees higher than the average daily maximum temperature from July 13th to July18th.
What is the maximum temperature on July 12th? :oops:

1) Average daily maximum temperature from July 13th to July 18th was 4 degrees less than the maximum temp on July 19th.

2) The average daily maximum temperature from July 12th to July 10th was 84 degrees.

Please explain in clarity

You have once again forgotten to include the question so explaining the answer "with" clarity (know your idioms) will be problematic at best....

It can be solved, it is C, it is the hardest one on the CD-ROm.

Are you sure you typed this question in 100% accurately? I'm struggling to see how this question, as it is written, is not E. My logic is that I don't see anything that distinguishes the 10th-12th in any way. All we have is an average for those 3 days, and we know that those 3 days are included in the 19 days. Hence, even if we could solve down to get the average of the 10th-12th, we could make 10,11, and 12 any values we wanted to work to that average.
