If A is the average of a1, a2, ..., an , then (a1 – A ) + (a2 – A ) +... + (an – A ) = 0 II. The average of the numbers which are in arithmetic progression is the middle number or the average of first and last numbers. If the average of a1, a2, ..., an is A, Then      the average of a1 + k, a2 + k, .... an + k will be A + k. the average of a1 − k, a2 − k, .... an – k will be A − k. the average of a1 k, a2 k, .... an k will be A k. the average of a1 /k, a2 /k, .... an / k will be A /k.

Numbers Integers:

Integers: ..., – 3, – 2, –1, 0, 1, 2, 3,.... Positive integers ( Natural numbers): 1, 2, 3, .... Negative integers: . ..., – 3, – 2, – 1 Non negative integers(Whole numbers): 0, 1, 2, 3, ... Even numbers: The numbers which are divisible by 2 are called even numbers. The general form of an even number is 2n, ( where n is an integer.)

Odd numbers: The numbers which gives 1 remainder when divided by 2 are called odd numbers. The general form of an odd number is 2n + 1, ( where n is an integer.)

Note :

Even + Even = Even Even x Even = Even Even + Odd = Odd Even x Odd = Even Odd + Odd = Even Odd x Odd = Odd The sum of ‘n’ odd numbers is odd, if ‘n’ is odd. The sum of ‘n’ odd numbers is even, if ‘n’ is even.

Prime Numbers: The numbers which are unbreakable (or) the numbers which have exactly two factors are called Prime numbers.
