How do you solve this problem?
The avera&e (aritmeticmean)of x and y is 5 and the avera&e of x, y, and z is 8. What is the value of z?
(e)3 I solved it by addin 8+5=13
So I chose (c)13. But it's wron& and the answer is (b)14. How did they arrive at that answer?????
You should solve it by two fives + z=24
why do i have to solve it this way?
