1/6 of the class students are above average,

Question:

1/6 of the class students are above average, ¼ are average and rest are below average. If there are 48 students in all, how many students are below average in the class?

Solution:

From the question it is given that,

Number of students in the class are above average = 1/6

Number of students in the class are average = ¼

Number of students in the class are below average = 1 – ((1/6) + (¼))

= 1 – ((2 + 3)/12)

= 1 – (5/12)

= (12 – 5)/12

= 7/12 students.

So, the number of students in the class = 48

Then,

Number of students below average = (7/12) × 48

= (7/1) × 4

= 28 students

∴The number of students in the class are below average are 28.
