BOOKMARKED
At the end of the term, a group of three students has to take three tests. The maximum score on each test is 200. The table below shows the number of points scored by each of the students on tests 1 and 2.
test 1 test 2
student 1 30 50
student 2 40 54
student 3 14 28

How much will the second student have to score on test 3 so that his average performance for the three tests would equal 30% ?
(A) 56 points
(B) 64 points
(C) 72 points
(D) 81 points

Question is asking for SECOND Student's average Score so forget about student ONE and THREE

now maximum score on each test is 200 points
so 30% would be 60 point

(40+54+A)/3=60
A=86
