If a + b = 9c, and 3a + 3b = 6d, then which of the following represents the average (arithmetic mean) of a, b, c, and d in terms of c?

A. 29c/8
B. 29c/6
C. 5c
D. 3c/2
E. 4c


a+b = 9c => 3a+3b = 27c
Similarly, 3a+3b = 6d

Therefore, d = \(\frac{27c}{6} = \frac{9c}{2}\)

Average = \(\frac{a+b+c+d}{4} = (9c+c+\frac{9c}{2})*(\frac{1}{4}) = \frac{29c}{2}*\frac{1}{4} = \frac{29c}{8}\)(Option A)
