A Cricket player scored 180 runs in the first match and 257 runs in the second match. Find the number of runs he should score in the third match so that the average of runs in the three matches be 230.
Runs scored in First match = 180 Runs scored in Second match = 257 Total runs scored in all three matches = Average x Number of matches
= 230 x 3
Runs scored in Third match = 690 − (180 + 257) = 690 − 437 = 253 Hence, runs he should score in the third match is 253.
