Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ317

The average of 3 numbers is 72. The sum of two of the numbers is 1/6 of the sum of all the three numbers. What is the third number?

Solution:

            The sum of two number is 1/6 fraction of the sum of all the three numbers.

            The third number is 5/6 fraction of the sum of the three numbers.

            The average number of the 3 numbers is 72.

            The sum of the 3 numbers = 72 × 3 = 216

            From the model,

                                                The sum of the 3 numbers = 72 × 3 = 216

                                                6 units = 216

                                                1 unit = 36

                                                The third number = 5 × 36 = 180
