# What should be Run Rate in the Remaining Over?

In the first 10 overs of a cricket game, the run rate was only 3.2. What should be the run rate in the remaining 40 overs to reach the target of 282 runs?

- 4.3
- 5.5
- 6.1
- 6.25

**Answer: (d) 6.25
Explanation:-**

The run rate of first 10 overs = 3.2

Then, total run made in first 10 overs = 10 x 3.2 = 32 runs

Let be the run rate of remaining 40 overs = X

Then, total run made in remaining 40 overs = 40 x X

32 + 40 x X = 282

40X = 282 – 32 = 272

X = 250/40 = 6.25
