SAT Math - Question Of The Day - 4 Jan 2017

Q: The sum, product, and average (arithmetic mean) of three integers are equal. If two of the integers are 0 and -3, the third integer is

Option:

a. -3

b.  0

c.  3

d.  6

Solution:

Let's assume the third integer to be a.

Sum of the integers = 0 + (-3) + x = x - 3

Product of the integers = 0 x (-3) x a = 0

Therefore, x - 3 = 0

                    x = 3

Hence, option C is correct.
