Town A has 6,000 citizens and an average (arithmetic mean) of 2 radios per citizen. Town B has 10,000 citizens and an average of 4 radios per citizen. What is the average number of radios per citizen in both towns combined?

A. 4/13
B. 9/13
C. 13/9
D. 13/4
E. 17/4



Total radio A = 6000 *2 = 12000

Total radio B = 10000 *4 = 40000

Average = 52000 / 16000 = 13 /4.

D is our answer.

\(Required \ Average = \frac{6000*2 + 10000*4}{(6000 + 10000)}\)

Or, \(Required \ Average = \frac{52000}{16000}\)

Or, \(Required \ Average = \frac{13}{4}\), Thus Answer must be (D)
