The average temperature of for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday was 30ºC.
The average temperature for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday was 29º C. The Temperature on Thursday was 32º C.

What was the temperature on Monday?

Hint:

Total temperature on Mon,Tue and Wed = 30ºC*3 = 90ºC
Total temperature on Tue,Wed and Thu = 29ºC*3 = 87ºC

Total temperature on Tue and Wed = Total temperature on Tue, Wed and Thu -Temperature on Thu = 87ºC-32ºC= 55ºC

Now, Temperature on Monday can be calculated as follows

Temperature on Monday = Total temperature on Mon,Tue and Wed-Total temperature on Tue and Wed

Ans: 35ºC
