Do you have sufficient information to solve this problem?
If yes, what is the score? If no, supply any data you need to answer the questions.

  1. if the average of 5 numbers is 28, the total of the 5 numbers is 5(28) or 140
    so (140 + x)/6 = 30
    times 6
    140 + x = 180
    x = 180-140
    x = 40

    notice in the 2nd, you don't have enough information.
    You have to know how many tests gave Anne her average of 92
