Problem: A team of 8 persons participated in a shooting competition.
The best shooter of the team got 85 points. Had he got 92 points the
average points of the team would have been 84. How many points did
the team get in the competition?

Solution: Had the best shooter got 92 points the average would have been 84.

Then the total number of points scored by the team 8 X 84 = 672

But the best shooter got only 85 points, i.e., 7 points less

⇒ The team scored 672 – 7 = 665 points only.
