    It is given that,

    The mean is the average of 5 numbers.

    Then if the,

    Next score is x the mean will be.

    We can solve now,

    → (85 +78 +77 + 69 + x)/5 = 80

    → (309 + x)/5 = 80

    → 309 + x = 80 × 5

    → 309 + x = 400

    → x = 400 – 309

    → x = 91

    Hence, the next score is 91.

    The mean the the average of 5 numbers. If the next score is x, then the mean is:

    • (85 + 78 + 77 + 69 + x)/5 = 80

    Solve it for x:

    • 309 + x = 80*5
    • x = 400 – 309
