 Question 699067: A basketball player averaged 20 points a game over the course of six games. His scores in five of those games were 23, 18, 16, 24 and 27. How many points did he score in the sixth game?Answer by Simnepi(204)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!to achieve a mean score of 20 over 6 games, the player must have scored a TOTAL of 120 points. His TOTAL score over the 5 games listed are 23+18+16+24+27=108 points. The points scored in the 6th game is the difference between those two totals Therefore he/she must have scored 120-108=12 points.
