Avg marks aimed byram in quaterly and halfyearly was 80

but he got 3 less in quaterly and 2 more in halfyearly ,so new avg is 77 and 82 respectively

given difference between marks obtained as 25

we avg=sum/no

here number means total number of exams

assume it as x

so 82x-77x=25

by solving we get x as 5

we need to find out marks aimed by ram

given avg as 80

so marks=avgno.of subjects

marks=805=400
