# Need help from a maths boffin watch

1. Say you have 8 numbers, denoted by A-H, each of which lies between 0 and 100

And also you're given that,

I = A + B
J = C + D
K = E + F
L = G + H

Obviously I-L all lie between 0 and 200.

Is the average of A-H the same as the average of I-L?

Basically just trying to figure out whether synoptic linkage affects my degree average.

Thanks.
2. Average of A-H: (A+B+C+D+E+F+G+H)/8
Average of I-L: (A+B+C+D+E+F+G+H)/4

Not the same

Sorry I've mucked up the question

I is the average of A and B, not the sum (and likewise for everything else)

Then they are the same
