Jill has four of her five game scores: 8,6,6,3

Her average score for the five games is 6 points. What is the fifth game score?

• math -

5 * 6 = 30

30 - 23 = ?

• math -

(8+6+6+3+x)divide by 2 = 6
so 8+6+6+3=23
then 23+x/2=6
6 multiply by 2= 23+x
12=23+x
x= -11
i think it can be positive anwser

• math -

(8+6+6+3+x)divide by 5 = 6
so 8+6+6+3=23
then 23+x/5=6
6 multiply by 5= 23+x
30=23+x
x= 7
