 Question 47400: Suppose Amanda's quiz average is 86, and these are her grades: 84,88,82,90,92,x, where x is unknown. Can you determine the missing grade? If yes, calculate. If not, why not?Answer by Earlsdon(6294)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!To find the average of a set of numbers (grades), add the numbers and divide by the number of numbers (6 in this case). Amanda's average is 86, so: simplify and solve for x. Multiply both sides of the equation by 6. Subtract 436 from both sides. The missing grade is 80.
