Average of total amount = 30+x(20) / x = 30
x=3

Total amount = 30 + 3(20) = 90 Sufficient,

(1) The cable company installed three cable outlets in the Horace family home. Total cost=$30+$20*3. Sufficient.

(2) The amount that the cable company charged the Horace family for installing cable television in their home was equivalent to an average (arithmetic mean) charge of the $30 per cable outlet installed. Say the number of outlets is x, then Total cost=$30+$20*x and the average is ($30+$20*x)/x --> ($30+\$20*x)/x=30. We can solve for x. Sufficient.
