# The A.M of set of 50 numbers is 48. If two numbers 52 and 44 are discarded then A.M of the remaining set of numbers is

$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;50 & \quad (B)\;52 \\ (C)\;48 & \quad (D)\;44 \end {array}$

Can you answer this question?

Total sum = $50 \times 48$
$= 2400$
Discarding two numbers 52 and 44, the sum becomes $2400-(52+44)=2304$
New A.M = $\large\frac{2304}{48}$
Average of 52 and 44 is 48
New A.M remains the same.
Ans : (C)
