- statistics-?mean average with lowest number out? -
**Steve**, Monday, January 7, 2013 at 3:23pmremaining 5 tests total 341 points

6 tests with avg 60 = 360

only needs 19 more points.

That doesn't sound right. If he needs an average of 60 on 7 tests, but one is dropped, does he need an average of 60 on the remaining 6? If so, he's home free. 5 of the first 6 tests had a score of over 60.

Or, does he need a total of 420 points over the 6 exams counted? That means an average of 70. In that case, he needs 79 on the 7th exam.

Poorly worded question.
