The first 10 overs run rate is 3.2 which means score will be taken 32 runs per 10 overs.

Target is 282 then 282-32=250 remaining 40 overs runs.

Finally 250/40=6.25.

First we have to calculate the last 40 overs run rate.

Total score =282 but already they are scored in first 10 overs score was(10 * 3.2=32),
For these, we are subtracting,
Total score -10 overs score then (282-32) = 250.
Then we have get the score of last 40 over the score was 250.
Total score scored by last 40 overs/ number of overs.
250/40 = 6.25.

Total over of match=10+40=50.
Total runs in 50 overs=282.
First 10 overs runs =3.2*10=32.
We have to calculate run rate of last 40 overs.
Now..run in 40 over= total run-10 over's run.
So, 282-32=250.

Run rate in 40 overs= run in 40 overs ÷overs.
=250÷40=6.25.

Hence, the required run rate in 40 is 6.25 answer.

3.2*10=32.
282-32=250.
250÷40=6.25.

For 1st 10 over:
3.2=(y/10).

Let y be the run.
y= 32 runs in 10 over.

For next 40 over:
x=(y+282)/50.

This match is talking about 1 day match which is of 50 overs. Also, 10+40=50.

Put value of 'y'
x=(32+282)/50,
x=6.28~6.25(ans).

Hope you understand.

First 10 overs ----> 3.2 runrate.
Remaining 40 overs ----> x runrate.

(10*3.2)+(40*x) = 282,
32+40x = 282,
X = 25/4,
X = 6.25.

@Biswaji.

it means ; 10x3.2+40x(x)=282.
so,
32+40x=282,
40x=282-32,
40x=250,
x=250/40,
x=6.25.
