A. $28.50 B. $27.00 C. $19.00 D. $18.50 E. $18.00

Let's plug in some NICE VALUES that satisfy the given information...

Last year the manufacturer sold twice as many units of Q as P. So, let's say the manufacturer sold 1 P and 2 Q's

What was the manufacturer’s average (arithmetic mean) revenue per unit sold of these 2 products last year? TOTAL revenue = 1($20.00) + 2($17.00) = $20.00 + $34.00 = $54

There were 3 units sold. So, average price = $54/3 = $18

A. $28.50 B. $27.00 C. $19.00 D. $18.50 E. $18.00

Revenue last year from the sale of P is 20*1 = 20 Revenue last year from the sale of Q is 17*2 = 34

Total Revenue from the sale of P and Q last year is 54

Average Revenue from the sale of P and Q last year is \(\frac{54}{2+1} = 18\)

Hence, answer will be (E) 18 _________________

We can compute a weighted average to solve. Let’s assume that 2 units of Q and 1 unit of P were produced last year. So the total revenue is 2 x 17 + 1 x 20 = $54, and thus the average revenue per unit is thus 54/3 = $18.

If the weights were the same we would get an average of (17 + 20) / 2 = 18.5.

But we have more of the product that costs 17$, so the average would be less than 18.5, only 18 works - E
