The average of the nine numbers is given by \(\frac{a1+a2+a3+...+a9}{9}=N\).

Therefore, \(a1+a2+a3...+a9= 9N\). (Let this be equation 1)

Now the average of the nine numbers and an added 10th number is given=T.
9
Therefore \(\frac{a1+a2+a3+...+a9+a10}{10}=T\) (Let this be equation 2)

From equation 1, we can substitute a1+a2+...a9 with 9N in equation 2; giving us:

\(\frac{9N+a10}{10}=T.\)

Therefore, \(a10=10T-9N\) (Choice B)

Sum initially=9*N
Sum finally=9N+x where x is the 10th term
Given,
(9N+x)/10=T
So, x=10T-9N
B should be the correct choice
