35*n ---- sum of the points of the first n games
n+1 ---- total number of games

34 = (35*n + 28)/(n+1)
34n + 34 = 35n + 28
n = 34 - 28 = 6
n+1 =7

Hence option C is correct

let the number of football matches before final match be n
total points = 35*n
total points after final match = 35*n +28 = 34*(n+1)
or 35n +28 = 34n+34 or n = 6
therefore total matches after final match = n +1 = 6 +1 =7.

option C

We are given that a football team averaged 35 points per game over the first n games of the season, or 35n total points. We are also given that after scoring 28 points in the final game, the average was 34 points per game. Note that the total number of games played is n + 1. Thus:

(35n + 28)/(n + 1) = 34

35n + 28 = 34n + 34

n = 6

Since the team played a total of n + 1 games, the answer is 6 + 1 = 7.

Answer: C

\(35*n + 28 = 34 (n +1)\)

Or, \(35n + 28 = 34n + 34\)

So, \(n = 6\)

Thus, total no of games played in the tournament is 6 +1 = 7, Answer must be (C)
