In the first 10 overs of a cricket game, the run rate was only 3.2. What should be the run rate in the remaining 40 overs to reach the target of 282 runs?
6.25
6.5
6.75
7
Explanation:

 Required run rate = 282 - (3.2 x 10) = 250 = 6.25 40 40

Total Runs in 10 overs/number of overs = run rate.
Total Runs in 10 overs/10 = 3.2.
Total Runs in 10 overs = 32.

Scores to achieve - Total Runs in 10 overs.
282 - 32 = 250.

250/40 = run rate.
So, run rate = 6.25.

Run rate = number of runs/number of overs.

Runs scored= run rate*overs.
= 3.2*10,
= 32.

In remaining 40 overs they score 250 runs.
Runs scored=run rate * overs.
250 = run rate * 40.
Run rate = 250/40.
= 6.25.

Assume run rate as average,

Then, Avg of first 10 overs = 3.2.

Avg(10) = total runs for 10overs/no.of overs.
3.2=total runs/10.
Total runs for 10 overs = 3.2 * 10 = 32,
Remaining runs=282-32 = 250,
Avg runs remaining 40 overs = 250/40 = 6.25.

First 10 over,
3.2 = 10 * 3.2 = 32runs.
40 overs is 282 = 282-32.
= 250.

250 Ã· 40 = 6.25,
6.25.

First 10 overs run rate 3.2=3.2 * 10 = 32.
Next, 40 overs is 282 = 282 - 32 = 250.
250 Ã· 40 overs = 6.25.
So, the answer is 6.25.

10 * 3.2 = 32
40 * X = 282
=> 282 - 32 = 250.

40X = 250.
X = 250/40.
X = 6.25.

Use the Average formula :

Average = sum of observations/number of observations.

For first 10 overs :
3.2 = Sum/10 --> Sum = 32--> Run in first 10 overs.
The total score is 282. First 10 overs, we scored 32 runs. So, remaining (282-32) runs=250 runs in 40 overs.

Applying the formula:

Average = sum of observations/number of observations.
Average= 250/40 = 6.25.

In a cricket match, Ashwin scored 40perct. Of total run scored by his team & Arijit scored 140 run which is 200/9perct less than Ashwin's score, find total run scored by Ashwin's team, Anyone please answer it.

Left over = 40-10 = 30overs.
So, required run rate = (target /left over ) - current run rate.
= (282/30)- 3.2.
= 6.2.
