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

**Reiny**, Tuesday, July 24, 2012 at 9:31amThere 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**
