**The average of 6 numbers is 7. The average of three numbers of them is 5. What will be the average of the remaining numbers?**

### Note

Average of 6 numbers is 7

Sum of 6 numbers is (6 × 7) = 42

Average of three numbers is 5

Sum of three numbers is (5 × 3) = 15

∴ Some of the remaining three numbers = (42 – 15) = 27

**∴ Required average = (27/3) = 9**
