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 348250 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
