To find how far Ken jumped on his fifth attempt in the state long jump finals

Statement 1

On his fifth jump, Ken exceeded the average length of his first four jumps by 2.5 feet.

We don't know anything about the average of Ken's four previous attempts

Statement 1 is insufficient

Statement 2

Ken’s fifth jump increased the length of his average (arithmetic mean) jump from 22.5 feet to 23 feet.

Ken's average for four jumps is 22.5

=> Sum of previous four jumps = 22.5 * 4 = 90

Let x be the distance Ken jumped in his fifth attempt

=> $$\frac{90 + x}{5}$$ = 23

=> 90 + x = 115

=> x = 25

Statement 2 is sufficient

Hence option B
