  1. The average salary per head of all the workers in a workshop is Rs. 850, if the average salary per head of 7 technician is Rs. 1000 and the average salary per head of the rest is Rs 780, the total number of workers in the work- shop is ?
    1. 18
    2. 20
    3. 22
    4. 24
  1. Correct Option: C

    Let the total number of workers be y.
    So sum of salary for all workers = sum of salary of 7 technician + sum of salary for other y -7 workers.
    7 x 1000 + 780(y -7) = 850 y
    ⇒ 7000 + 780y - 5460 = 850y
    ⇒ 70y = 1540
    ∴ y = 22

    So total number of workers = 22
