### From Homeworkwiki

**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.
