500gm= 0.5kg
So, second average and number would be 13 and 27 respectively.
26×12.5 + X = 13×27
X = 351-325= 26
Option C

Average weight of 26 dogs is increased by 1/2 kg, so total increase in weight is 26 x 1/2 = 13 kg.

Weight of new dog = new average weight + increased weight = 13 + 13 = 26 kg

C is correct.

Notice that the sum of the weights of the 26 dogs is 12.5 x 26 = 325 kg. Let n = the weight of the dog, in kg, added to the group. We can create the equation (note: 500 g = 0.5 kg):

(325 + n)/27 = 0.5 + 12.5

325 + n = 13 x 27

325 + n = 351

n = 26

Answer: C
