1.The average of four men is x, so their overall score is 4x When a new man comes their average score is x+3, so the overall score is (x+3)*4= 4x+12 If we compare the overall score before (4x) and the overall score now (4x+12) it becomes clear, that the new guy's score is higher by 12 points than the score of the man before him, so 120+12= 132 points. The answer is: the new man's marks are 132 points. 2.His average before= x His overall score before= 16x His average score now=x+3 His overall score now=(x+3)*17=17x+51 16x+85=17x+51 34=x (his average score before) His average score now is 34+3=37

1. let the average marks of the 4 men be x. therefore total marks = 4x. now when you replace the man who got 120 marks and replace him by another man who got ,say, y marks. then the average marks becomes x+3. now the total marks is 4x+12. hence 4x-120+y = 4x+12 => -120+y = 12 => y=132. therefore the other man got 132 marks.

2. let his average runs after 16 matches be x. hence total runs in 16 matches = 16x. now by scoring 85 runs in the 17th match he increases his average by 3 runs. therefore 16x+85 = 17(x+3) => 16x+85 = 17x+51 => x = 85-51 = 34. therefore his average runs in 17 matches = x+3 = 37.
