    Answer: (1) 38 years
    The average of 24 boys and their teacher = 15 years

    Total age 24 boys and teacher = 24 x 15 = 360 years

    When, teacher is excluded then remains boy = 24 – 1 = 23 boys

    And the average decreases by 1 year

    New average = 15 – 1 = 14

    Total age of 23 boys = 23 x 14 = 322 years

    The age of teacher = 360 – 322 = 38 years            Ans.

    Hence, the age of teacher is 38 years.
