What is the average (arithmetic mean) of eleven consecutive integers?

1. The average of the first 9 integers is 7.

2. The average of the last 9 intergers is 9.

I think the answer should be D.

Hi,
Think that D is not correct.
The consecutive integers may be in increasing or decreasing order which will give different results.
Think it is E

Agree D.

integers may be x, x+1, ... x+10 then
A => 9x+36=63 => x=3 => suff
B => 9x+54=81 => x=3 => suff

Juaz,

How did you get A => 9x+36=63 and 9x+54=81

A is first nine integars
x, x+1, ... , x+8 = 9x + (1+2+...+8) = 9x + 36

And in my opinion, we should not worry about calculating the answer. We should concentrate on finding if we can calculate it or not.

Two equations and two variables will give answer. I will leave the question the moment i have the equations.

x + (x+1) + (x+2) + ...(x+8) = 9x+ (1+2+3+...+8) = 9x + (8)(9)/2 (sum of consecutive intergers)= 9x+36

hope this clears it up for u
