Official Solution:

After 6 games, team B had an average of 61.5 points per game. If the team scored 47 points in game 7, how many more points does the team need to score to get its total above 500?

A. 85
B. 84
C. 83
D. 74
E. 62


6 games with an average of 61.5 points per game: \(61.5 * 6 = 369\) total points. Plus another game: \(369 + 47 = 416\)

To reach a total above 500 points, team B needs to score \(501 - 416 = 85\) points.


Answer: A

The trick here is you need to calculate the number of points the team needs to score to bring their total points scored above 500, which is 501, not 500. It seems to be little tricks like this that are the GMATS bread and butter.
