**7. Find the average of 1, 4, 9, 16, ………625.**

a)313 b) 221 c) 216 d) 208 e) None of these

**Key**

**1. a**

Runs scored in the first 10 overs = 10×3.2=32

Total runs = 282

remaining runs to be scored = 282 – 32 = 250

remaining overs = 40

Run rate needed = = 6.25

**2. c**

Sum of 5 numbers = 5×27 = 135

Sum of 4 numbers after excluding one number = 4×25 = 100

Excluded number = 135 – 100 = 35

**3. b**

Let average expenditure of 10 friends = x

Tenth friend expenditure = x 45

Total expenditure of ten friends = 10x = 9 X 20 x 45

9x = 225

x = 25

Total expenditure of ten friends = 10x = 10 X 25 = Rs 250

**4. d**

Let number of technicians = x

Number of other workers = 100 – x

Total salary = 100 X 24,000 = x X 40,000 (100 – x) 20,000

40,000x – 20,000x = 4,00,000

20,000x = 4,00,000

x = 20

Number of technicians = 20

**5. e**

Total increased weight = 20 X 1.5 = 30 kg

Weight of new person = 50 30 = 80 kg

**6. d**

The total weight of A and B = 2 X 50 = 100 kg

The total weight of B and C = 2 X 70 = 140 kg

The total weight of C and A = 2 X 60 = 120 kg

2(A B C) = 80 120 160 = 360

A B C = 180 kg

B’s weight = 180 – 120 = 60kg

**7. b**

The average of squares of first n natural numbers =

a. = = 221
