A car salesman has 7 used cars for sale. They have a mean price of 8000. What is the total price of all 7 cars?

Answer: $56,000

Solution:

Let the mean be x. x ÷ 7 = 8,000, so x = 8,000 • 7 = 56,000. Also, the mean is the sum divided by tht total objects, so to find the total of the objects, multiply the mean by the number of objects. Hope this makes sense!

AVERAGE price = $ 8000

then 7 x $8000 = $ 56000.00
