# What is the Weight of the New Man? If

The average weight of 8 men is increased by 1.5 kg when one of the men who weight 65 kg is replaced by a new man. The weight of the new man is:

- 70 kg
- 74 kg
- 76 kg
- 77 kg

**Answer: (4) 77 kg**

**Explanation:-**

The average weight of 8 men is increased by 1.5 kg.

Then, the increased weight = 1.5 x 8

= 12 kg

The weight of old man = 65 kg

Then, the weight of new man = 65 + 12

= 77 kg.

Hence, the answer is (4) 77 kg.
