Question:

$525, $350, $275, $630, $1,010, $275, and x.

What would the value of x equal if the average funds collected were $500?

A
$435

Explaination

If the average is $500, then

($525 + $350 + $275 + $630 + $1,010 + $275 + x) ÷ 7 = $500.

Solve for x.

($3,065 + x) ÷ 7 = $500

$3,065 + x = 7 × $500 = $3,500

x = $3,500 - $3,065 = $435
