The average (arithmetic mean) of x, x + 2, x + 4, and x + 6 is 6. What is the average of x^2, (x + 2)^2, (x + 4)^2, and (x + 6)^2 ?

A. 30
B. 36
C. 41
D. 49
E. 52



(x+ x + 2+ x + 4+ x + 6)= 6*4
x= 3

x^2, (x + 2)^2, (x + 4)^2, and (x + 6)^2

Substitute x = 3
we get
(9+25+49+81)/4= 164/4= 41 option C

\(\frac{(4x+12)}{4} =6\)

\(4x+12=24\)

\(4x = 12\)

\(x=3\)

\(\frac{3^2 +(3 + 2)^2 +(3+ 4)^2 +(3 + 6)^2}{4} = 41\)
