# What is the Mean of New Number?If

The mean of 75 numbers is 35. If each number is increased by 5, then the mean of new numbers is

- 30
- 40
- 50
- 90

**Answer: (b) 40
Explanation:-**

The mean of 75 numbers = 35

Sum of 75 numbers = 35 x 75 = 2625

If each number is increased by 5

then, sum of numbers = 2625 + 5 x 75 = 3000

the average of new 75 numbers = 3000/75 = 40

Hence, the average of new 75 numbers is 40.
