If the mean score on a set of 24 tests is 81and two more students took the test and score a 70 and a 59 what would be the new mean?

• MATH -

easy way
26 tests, 24 *81 + 70 + 59 = 2073

2073/26 = 79.7

• MATH -

24 * 81 = 1944

(1,944 + 70 + 59)/26 = ?

Thank you both for helping me with this problem.
