A. 2x + 4

B. 3x − 2

C. 3x + 2

D. 4x − 2

E. 4x + 2


Add 'x' terms and \(x^0\) terms , and divide by number of numbers( here 4),

Average or AM=\(\frac{2x+5x+6x+3x+3-4-6-1}{4}=\frac{16x-8}{4}=4x-2\)

Ans. (D)

Average/Mean = (Sum of all the terms)/ (No of the terms)

Here,
Sum of all the terms= (2x + 3) + (5x − 4) + (6x − 6) + (3x − 1)
= 16x - 8
No of the terms = 4

Average = (16x - 8)/ 4
= 4x - 2(D)

(2x + 3 + 5x − 4 + 6x − 6 + 3x − 1)/4 = (16x - 8)/4 = 4x - 2

Answer: D
