Now we need to find the least value of n

let us take the average =

\(\frac{(10 + 12 + n + n)}{4}\) = 25

or 22 + 2n = 100

or n = 39 . Now n cannot be 39 because the average of all these 4 nos > 25

so the least value should be 40

Explaination

To find the average, divide the total by the number of values. So,\(\frac{10+12+n+n}{4}> 25.\)

Multiply both sides of the inequality by 4 and then subtract 22 (10 + 12) to find 2n > 78. Divide by 2 to find n > 39. So, n is NOT 39; it is the least integer greater than 39, which is 40.

Alternatively, you could plug in the answers starting with choice (A) because the question asks for the least possible value. If n = 38 or 39, then the average is not greater than 25. If n = 40, the average is greater than 25.

The answer is choice C.
