#### Average Question & Answers

In a village the average age of n people is 42 years. But after the verification it was found that the age of a person had been considered 20 years less than the actual age, so the new average, after the correction,increased by 1. The value of n is :

A) 21 | B) 20 |

C) 22 | D) None of these |

Explanation:

It is the same as a person with 20 years more age replaces an existing person of the group ( or village)

Since the total age of the village having n persons, is being increased by 20 years and the average age of village is being increased by 1 year, hence there are total 20 people in the village.

**Alternatively : ** ( n x 42 ) + 20 = ( n x 43 )

=> n=20
