The average grew from 150000 to 225000 , all due to 3 shops...

So, Average per shop will be \(\frac{( 225000 - 150000 )}{3}\) = \(25000\)

Hence answer will be (A) 25000...

if the average annual revenue of the 5 shops which are still open is 225,000, it means that they make a total of \(225,000*5= 1,125,000\) $

let's call the average annual revenue of the 3 shops that have been closed x.
therefore, they make a total of \(3*x\) $

We know that the total revenue of the 8 shops that were open has to be 150,000

Thus \(\frac{(3x+1,125,000)}{8} = 150,000\)

therefore \(x =25,000\) ===> answer A

[(8)($150,000)-(5)($225,000)]/3=$25,000
