### Explanatory Answer

##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Ratio, Mixtures and Averages: How the individual data points affect the average?

For minimum, teams with minimum score would be transferred from B to A
So, total score transferred = 24 * 5 = 120
A(Minimum Average) = $$frac{$20*20 + 120$}{25}$ = 20.8 For maximum, if we take teams with maximum score, total score transferred = 32 * 5 = 160 However, if we assume that 5 teams scored the highest score, the average of remaining teams in B would come out to be, $\frac{$625-160$}{20}$ = $\frac{465}{20}\\$ = 23.25 which is lower than the lowest score of B. So, 5 teams in B can’t have score of 32. so, minimum total score which need to be on group B = 24 * 20 = 480 Score that can be transferred = 625 – 480 = 145 A$Maximum Average) = $$frac{$400 + 145$}{25}$ = $\frac{545}{25}\\$ = 21.8 The question is "In the previous question, what can be the minimum and maximum value of A’s average if 5 teams are transferred from B to A?" ##### Hence, the answer is "20.8 and 21.8 ".
