Why will we multiply the sum of column by 7?
Take 1 row at a time
1st row: Total = Average*Number of elements = 4*7
2nd row: Total = Average*Number of elements = -8*7
3rd row: Total = Average*Number of elements = 12*7
4th row: Total = Average*Number of elements = -16*7
5th row: Total = Average*Number of elements = 20*7
6th row: Total = Average*Number of elements = -24*7
7th row: Total = Average*Number of elements = 28*7
Add them up:
4*7+(-8)*7+12*7+(-16)*7+20*7+(-24)*7+28*7
Take 7 common:
7(4-8+12-16+20-24+28)
Hello Fluke
just to make sure I understood
as thoses questions look tricky and time consuming
first each line is a AP Progression
you use the average formula in reverse to find the sum
since in an AP Progression the mean or average is the same as median number
and then you factorise by 7 to complete the sum and multiply it by 7 as each line is a multiple of 7
right ?
Thanks for help
best regards
Each row represents an evenly spaced set (aka arithmetic progression).
.
The median of each row is the middle number and each row has 7 numbers in it so the sum of the table is:
\(7*4+7*(-8)+7*12+7*(-16)+7*20+7*(-24)+7*28=7(4-8+12-16+20-24+28)=112\).
Answer: B.

I went for a different approach, the sum of every coulmn came as a multiple of 4, starting from 4, and there are 7 columns.
So sum = 4 + 8 + 12 + 16 + 20 + 24 + 28
= 112
Answer - B
hello
why do you have added all the
average plz explain
thanks for your help
best regards
Those are not averages, but the sums of the numbers in each column.
