I don't understand this it says

If the average of 6 numbers was 58, what could the 6 numbers be?

That would take forever to work out. What is the easiest way to work that out

Ohh BTW this is due in tomorrow

There is no unique answer
If the average of the 6 numbers is 58, then the total of those number must be 6x58 or 348

So just pick any 5 numbers off the top of your head, then calculate what the 6th number has to be to total 348

e.g 50 60 40 30 70
so far I have a sum of 250
so my 6th number has to be 348-250 or 98
one possible choice:
50 60 40 30 70 98

e.g. #2
60 60 60 60 60 , so far we have a total of 300
our choice is 60 60 60 60 60 48
