  1. Mean = (sum of scores)/number of scores

    If I understand your problem correctly, the ratio of the three scores are 6:5:3 and the mean of the three = 75. If that is what you are saying, then:

    75 = (6x + 5x + 3x)/3 = 14x/3

    14x = 225

    Solve for x.

    However, this does not give you the answers you indicate. Sorry. Can you state the problem more clearly?
