The average weight of 15 items is 8kg. The least average weight of 5 items of these 15 is 5 kg. If no item weighs less than 5kg, what is the maximum number of items that can have the same weight?

3
5
6
10
14


Can some tell me what exactly is "least average" weight in different words?

My guess would be 14. the 5 weighing 5 kg......then 5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,40

25kg + 95kg/15= 8kg

make sense?

ok so there is 2 constraints

first: the lowest 5 elements have an avg of 5kg = 25kg total
second: no element is less than 5kg, meaning the elements can weigh 5kg.

can u explain how we can the maximum # of elements that weigh the same?
