14. What is the average (arithmetic mean) of a, b, and c?

(1) abc = 27
(2) a + b + c = 3
3 3 3

I got that (2) is sufficient but how do you know that (1) is insufficient?

Why (1) is insufficient?
abc=27
a=1, b =3, c=9
a=3, b=3, c=3

We got different averages, it can't be sufficient. This is just a small example of it
