5 * 89 = 445

600 * 0.9 = 540

540 - 445 = 95

( x 1 + x 2 + x 3 + x 4 + x 5 ) / 5 = 89 Multiply both sides by 5

x 1 + x 2 + x 3 + x 4 + x 5 = 89 * 5 = 445

( x 1 + x 2 + x 3 + x 4 + x 5 + x 6 ) / 6 = 90

( 445 + x 6 ) / 6 = 90 Multiply both sides by 6

445 + x 6 = 6 * 90 = 540

x 6 = 540 - 445 = 95
