**Emily**, Thursday, October 18, 2007 at 9:11pmLet's say the score of the 5th test her is x. To get an average of something, you add everything up and divide by the number of numbers (in this case, tests), right? So, this is how you would set this one up:

------------- = 80

5

Can you solve the rest?
