Decrease in Average Shortcut method explained

128 Comments (http://mrunal.org/2013/02/aptitude-averages-entry-removal-of-1-element-increase-

1. Case: Avg age of Students + Teacher

1. Approach #1: convert into money problem

2. Approach #2: Formula method

2. Case: Avg salary workers+manager

3. Case: Avg weight students+teachers

4. Case: original average not given

2. Situation: Entry of 1 element Decrease in Avg

1. Case: younger Kid joins: average goes down

2. Case: Average Runs decline (original not given)

3. Situation: Removal of 1 element -increase in avg

4. Situation: Removal of 1 element -decrease in avg

5. Mock questions

Lets start with really simple case. In Gokuldham society, the average age of four kids is 14 years.

If Mr. Champak is included in this group, the average age increases by 11 years. How old is

Mr.Champak?

Four kids got Rs.14 each.

Champak makes a new gang with rule, everyone must have Rs.25 (bcoz 14+11=25)

But those kids got only Rs.14. so how much cash should Champak bring, to form this new

gang?

Lets think about it

Those kids got only Rs.14 each and want to join the new group.

But each of them would need Rs.11 extra.

So Champak must give them Rs. 11 x 4 kid = Rs.44

And Champak also wants to be a part of this gang, so he should also bring Rs.25 for himself.

Therefore, Champak must bring Rs. 44 (to give to those kids) + 25 (for himself) =44+25=69

Hence nal answer: age of Champak is 69 years.

Avg Age problem Concept

(http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/6980/averageusingmoneyproble.jpg)

OBSERVE HOW NUMBERS ARE MOVING WHILE THE AVERAGE CHANGES.

Average age of 36 students is 14 years. If teachers age is included, then average increases by

one. Find the age of teacher. (RBI)

We can solve it by two approaches

1. Convert into Money problem (easy, quick)

2. Formula method. (lengthy, time consuming)

Whenever you face such question on average, try to convert it into a money problem, then it

becomes very easy to visualize.

36 kids had Rs.14 each

1 teacher comes.

New average is 15 (original 14+ increases by 1)

How much cash does teacher have?

Ok lets think about it.

There is a gang of 36 kids. And it has rule: everyone must have Rs.14.

Teacher wants to form a new gang. And it has rule: everyone must have Rs.15.

But those kids have only Rs.14 each.

So teacher must give Rs.1 to each of those 36 kids.

Meaning teacher must bring Rs.1 x 36 =Rs.36

And teacher should keep Rs.15 aside for himself. (because new gang rule is everyone must

have Rs.15)

So how much cash did teacher bring in? =Rs.36 (to give to kids) PLUS Rs.15 (for himself)

=36+15=Rs.51 thats our nal answer. Age of Teacher is 51 years.

Formula for average: average = sum of observation divided by number of observation

36=(sum of kids)/14

Therefore, sum of kids(s)=36 x 14

S=504

37 =((sum of kids)+age of teacher))/15

Therefore, S + teacher=37 x 15

Now plugin the value of s=504 from previous equation

504+teacher =555

Teacher =555-504=51 thats our nal answer.

As you can see, the problem with this formula method = youve to do lengthy multiplications

(37 x 15 and 36 x 14). Thus

1. it breaks your momentum, decreases your speed in the exam.

2. you might make some silly mistake in multiplications or during plugging the values in

equations.

So better just try to solve such questions using money problem method.

The average salary of 20 workers is Rs.1500. If managers salary is added, this average increases

by Rs.100. Find the salary of Manager.(RRB)

It is already in money problem format.

20 guys have Rs.1500 each

Now Manager wants to increase this average by Rs.100. (new avg =1500+100=1600)

So manager must give Rs. 100 to each of these 20 guys= manager must bring total 100 x 20

=Rs.2000 with him.

But this new group has a rule everybody must have Rs.1600. Hence, If manager wants to

be part of this new group, he must keep Rs.1600 aside for himself.

So, how much cash should manager bring? =Rs.2000 (to give to workers) + Rs.1600 for

himself

=2000+1600

=3600 this is the nal answer.

There are 24 kids in a class with average weight of 35 kilograms. If Teachers weight included,

the average increases by 400 grams. Find weight of teacher.

Convert this into money problem

1. 24 kids have 35 rupees each

2. Teacher wants to form new gang: everyone must have 35.4 rupees each (because 400 gms

Ok lets think about it

Teacher must give 0.4 rupees to each of those 24 kids=24 x 0.4 =9.6

And he must bring Rs.35.4 for himself.

so how much cash should teacher bring in? =9.6 (for kids) + 35.4 (for himself)

=9.6+35.4

=45. Thats our nal answer: weight of teacher is 45 kilos.

In his 11th inning, a batsman scored 216 runs and his average increased by 12 runs. Whats his

new average? (Bank)

Money problem

1. 10 guys had Rs.m each

2. New guy (11th) has Rs.216 and he forms a new gang.

3. In this new gang of 11 guys, each person has Rs.(m+12) each. Find value of m+12.

Lets think about it:

New guy wanted to form a new gang where everyone had Rs.m+12.

But those 10 guys from old gang, had only Rs.m

That means new guy should give each of those 10 people Rs.12

So new guy gave away Rs.12 x 10 =Rs.120

So new guy is left with Rs. 216 (he originally had) MINUS Rs.120 (that he gave away)

216-120=Rs.96 thats our answer.

so far we saw Average: Entry of 1 Element=>leading to Increase in Average.

Now lets check Average: Entry of 1 Element => leading to decrease in average

The average age of six kids is 12 years. A new kid joins the gang and average decreased by one

year. What is the age of this new kid?

Money problem

Six kids got 12 rupees each.

New kid wants to form a new gang with rule eachone must have only Rs.11

Ok lets think about it

Since average is declining, we are sure that new kid has less money than Rs.11.

But he wants everyone to have (12-1)=11 rupees.

He tells those 6 kids, each of you give me 1 rupees. = 6 x 1 = Rs.6 borrowed.

So how much money did that new kid bring? Well, Now he is part of new gang so obviously

he has Rs.11 .

but he has borrowed Rs.6 from others.

Meaning, he originally had 11-6 =Rs.5

Final answer: age of new kid is 5 years.

Lets try a case where one element is removed.

A cricketer made 90 runs in his 12th inning, and his average declined by 5 runs. Find new

average.

Money problem

11 guys had average Rs.m each

12th guy has Rs.90 and he makes new gang, with rule everyone must have Rs.(m-5)

Lets think about it

Since average is declining, we can be sure that new guy has less money than previous

average (m).

But he wants everyone to have (m-5) rupees (he should also have m minus 5 rupees.)

So he tells those 11 people, give 5 rupees each to me. = 11 x 5 = Rs.55

How much cash does the new guy have now?= 90 (he originally had) + Rs.55 (that he

borrowed)=Rs.90+55=145 thats our new average.

Final answer: new average runs after 12 innings is 145.

A batsman played 30 innings with an average of 78 runs.

If we ignore the score of his last innings, then average increases by 2 runs. How many runs did

he score in last inning?

Money problem

30 guys with Rs.78 each

1 guy (Jethalal) leaves this gang after settling his debts.

Average of remaining 29 guys is (78+2)=80 runs.

Ok lets proceed

Since average is increases after member leaves the gang= this member (Jetha) had less

money than others.

That means other people had lended him some money (to raise him to the average of 78.)

When Jethalal leaves the gang, remaining guys get 2 rupees each.

That means Jetha gave them Rs. 2 to each of those 29 remaining guys.=2 x 29= Rs.58

And once upon a time, Jethalal was part of this gang, so he had Rs.78.

It means Jethas original money = Rs.78 minus Rs.58 (that he borrowed)=78-58=Rs.20

Final answer: batsmans score in last inning was 20 runs.

Four members of a family earn average Rs.7350. One of them, leaves and average goes down to

Rs.6500. How much did that person earn, who has now left the family? (SSC)

2. One of them (known as Jethalal) steals money from others and leaves.

3. Now 3 guys left and theyve Rs.6500 each

Ok lets think about it

Jetha wants to bring down average from 7350 to 6500 =decline of 850.

So he must steal Rs.850 from each of the remaining three guys =Rs.850 x 3=2550.

And since Jetha was once part of this gang, he too used to earn Rs.7350 himself.

Therefore total cash with Jethalal =7350 (he originally had) + 2550 (that he stole) =Rs.9900.

Final answer: the income of person who left family, is Rs.9900

Answers

1. 42

2. 140

3. 4.5 lakhs annually / 12 = 37500 monthly income.

4. Decline of Rs.500. So manager had Rs.500 x 21 + 2000= Rs.12500

5. 87 runs.

6. 20 x 60 = 1200 runs.

7. 30 matches. he kept 49 for himself and gave 5 rupees each to m number of people.

199=49+5m. so m=30 matches.

8. 16 cars. (Rs.3 for himself + 1 x 13 donated=16 cars stolen last night)

9. 2.5% decline= 50 rupees on 2000. so 21 workers gave him 21 x 50 =1050. and he is part of

new gang= he has 1950 minus 1050 borrowed =His salary is 900.

10. 20 runs.

11. 49.5 kilos.

12. 2.8 lakh.
