you only have to think about how you calculate average. Do you know?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

get the sum of all the numbers and divide by the number them

OpenStudy (anonymous):

correct! how can you use this here?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so add all the $ amounts then divide by 5?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

when I do written problems I always think about what should be the variable x

here it should be the 5th customers sale, can you write an equation with that?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

have you given it up? :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

got kicked off internet

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so the average is (200+150+125+75+x)/5 =125
this is the equation that you have to solve

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yeah Eliza did it :-)
