Average height

There are twice as many girls in the class as there are boys. The average height of girls is 177 cm, boys 186 cm. What is the average height of students in this class?

Result

a =  180 cm

Solution:

d=2c a=177 d+186 cd+c a=177 2c+186 c2c+c  a=177 2+186 12+1=180 cmd=2c \ \\ a=\dfrac{ 177 \cdot \ d+186 \cdot \ c }{ d+c } \ \\ a=\dfrac{ 177 \cdot \ 2c+186 \cdot \ c }{ 2c+c } \ \\ \ \\ a=\dfrac{ 177 \cdot \ 2+186 \cdot \ 1 }{ 2+1 }=180 \ \text{cm}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
