The GMAT Math practice question given below is a sequences and series question. The concept tested is that of finding the Arithmetic Mean of an AP.

Question 18: The average of 5 consecutive integers starting with m as the first integer is n. What is the average of 9 consecutive integers that start with (m + 2)?

- m + 4
- n + 6
- n + 3
- m + 5
- n + 4

@ INR

The fastest way to solve problems of this kind is to take numerical examples.

Let the 5 consecutive integers be 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

The average of 5 consecutive integers from 1 to 5 is 3.

Therefore, the value of m is 1 and the value of n is 3.

Because m = 1, m + 2 = 3

9 consecutive integers starting from m + 2 will be 3, 4, ... , 11

The average of positive integers from 3 to 11 is 7.

We know n = 3. So, 7 has to be (n + 4).
