Three students had collected some data on the wingspan of some bats. Unfortunately, each student had lost one measurement. Can you find the missing information?
Can you number the vertices, edges and faces of a tetrahedron so
that the number on each edge is the mean of the numbers on the
adjacent vertices and the mean of the numbers on the adjacent
Ann thought of 5 numbers and told Bob all the sums that could be made by adding the numbers in pairs. The list of sums is 6, 7, 8, 8, 9, 9, 10,10, 11, 12. Help Bob to find out which numbers Ann was thinking of.
The mean of a sequence of $64$ numbers is $64$. The mean of the first $36$ numbers is $36$. What is the mean of the last $28$ numbers?
