A mean average of 60 on 7 exams is needed to pass a course. on his first 6 exams, Adam received grades of 46,74,70,59,66 and 72. if his lowest grade of the exams already taken is to be dropped,what grade must he receive on his last exam to pass?

remaining 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.
