** Basic concepts on Average**

The average value $A$ of a set of $n$ number of values is,

$A=\displaystyle\frac{\text{Sum of }n\text{ values }S_n}{n}$.

Alternatively,

$\text{Sum of }n\text{ number of values }S_n=n\times{\text{Average of }n\text{ values }A}$.

Using these two of the most basic concepts on average, the problems on average are solved.
