(6+ 30 + 64 + 2K)/4 = 36 => K= 22. Answer (B)

(A) 20
(B) 22
(C) 24
(D) 40
(E) 44

Arithmetic Mean(AM) = Sum/No. of terms
Sum= 6+30+64+2K = 100 +2K
No. of terms = 4
AM= 36 = (100 +2k)/4
144 = 100+2k
44=2k
22=k
Correct Answer= B

\(A*n = S\) and \(\frac{Sum}{n}=A\)

Four integers have a mean (arithmetic average) of 36.

Three of the integers are 6, 30, and 64. Fourth integer = 2K

\(A = 36\), \(n = 4\)

\(\frac{6 + 30 + 64 + 2K}{4} = 36\)
\(100 + 2K = 144\)
\(2K = 44\)
\(K = 22\)


Answer B

6 + 30 + 64 + 2k = 36*4

Or, 100 + 2k = 144

So, 2k = 44

Or, k = 22, answer must be (B)

Since the average of 4 integers is 36, the sum of the integers is 4 x 36 = 144. We can create the equation:

6 + 30 + 64 + 2K = 144

2K = 44

K = 22

Answer: B
