A man whose bowling average is 12.4 takes 5 wickets for 26 runs and there by decreases his average by 0.4. The number of wickets taken by him before his last match is:

A. 85
B. 78
C. 72
D. 64
E. 62


Bowling average = Runs / wicket

Old Average = 12.4

New inning = 26/5 = 5.2

new average = (12.4*x+26) / (x+5) = 12

i.e. 12x + 60 = 12.4x + 26

i.e. 0.4x = 34

i.e. x = 85

Answer: Option A

avg ; 26/5 ; 5.2
12.4*x+26= 12* (x+5)

x = 85
