Here,

We know \(Arithmetic mean = \frac{Sum of numbers}{number of terms}\)

i.e. \(\frac{Sum of numbers}{5} = 25\)

or \(Sum of numbers = 125\)

Now if 1 number is removed then Arithmetic mean = 31

i.e. \(\frac{Sum of numbers}{4} = 31\)

or \(Sum of numbers = 124\)

Therefore \(the number removed = 125 - 124 = 1\)
