# ASVAB Arithmetic

In Tim's last 5 games here's the number of three-point field goals scored per game.
9
6
0
9
3

How many three-point field goals would Tim have to kick in the next game to bring his average (arithmetic mean) to six points per game?

I just need to be walked through how you would solve this or a similar problem.

1. 6 points per game for 6 games is 36 points total
So, how many points shy is he after 5 games?
Divide that by 3 to find the number of goals needed.

Actually, I suspect a typo.
