Answer: average means add all scores and divide by number of scores earned

last score is x

so the sum is 75+81+x

3 scores so (75+81+x)/3=average

must be no less than (greater than or equal to 80)

(75+81+x)/3≥80

solve

times both sides by 3 to clear fraction

75+81+x≥240

156+x≥240

minus 156 from both sides

x≥84

the studen must earn at least 84 on last examStep-by-step explanation:
