# What could be The Highest of These Consecutive Numbers?

If the average of five consecutive numbers is 33, then what could be the highest of these consecutive numbers?

- 34
- 32
- 33
- 35

**Answer: (4) 35**

**Explanation:-
**Let the five consecutive numbers are X, X + 1, X + 2, + 3, X + 4.

The average of five consecutive numbers = 33

Then, the sum of five consecutive numbers = 33 x 5

= 165

Therefore, X + X + 1 + X + 2 + X + 3 + X + 4 = 165

5X + 10 = 165

5X = 165 – 10

5X = 155

X = 155/5

X = 31

Then, the value of the highest consecutive number X + 4 = 31 + 4 = 35.

Hence, the answer is (4) 35.
