Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : 67.25 kg

Given:

Average weight of 12 boys = 68 kg

Wrong weight of one boy = 54 kg

Actual weight = 45 kg

Formula used:

Average = sum of observations/total number of observations

Calculation:

Total weight = 12 × 68 = 816 kg

Actual weight = 816 - 54 + 45 = 807

∴ Actual average = 807/12 = 67.25 kg

∴ The average is 67.25 kg
