I don't understand this it says

If the average of 6 numbers was 58, what could the 6 numbers be?

That would take forever to work out. What is the easiest way to work that out

    There is no unique answer
    If the average of the 6 numbers is 58, then the total of those number must be 6x58 or 348

    So just pick any 5 numbers off the top of your head, then calculate what the 6th number has to be to total 348

    e.g 50 60 40 30 70
    so far I have a sum of 250
    so my 6th number has to be 348-250 or 98
    one possible choice:
    50 60 40 30 70 98

    e.g. #2
    60 60 60 60 60 , so far we have a total of 300
    our choice is 60 60 60 60 60 48
