E. 8



j + ( j + 5 ) + ( 2j – 1 ) + ( 4j – 2 ) + ( 5j – 1 ) = 40

Or, 13j + 1 = 40

Or, 13j = 39

Or, j = 3

Hence answer will be (D) 3

Average of 5 numbers j, j + 5, 2j – 1, 4j – 2, and 5j – 1 is 8

Average = Total (sum of numbers)/ number of terms

[ j + (j+5) + (2j-1) + (4j-2) + (5j-1) ] / 5 = 8
[13j + 1 ] / 5 = 8
13j +1 = 8* 5
13j = 40 - 1 = 39
j = 39/13 = 3 .... Answer D.....

Please, consider giving kudos if you find my answer helpful in any way :) :good :thumbup:
