Let's first write down the information that we have.

4 races

30 Minute average

First 3 times are 25, 35, and 27 minutes

Average = Sum of times/Number of Times

Let's call that last time we are trying to find out "x".

$$30 = \frac{x+25+35+27}{4}$$

$$30 = \frac{x+87}{4}$$

$$120 = x+87$$

$$x = 120-87$$

$$x = 33$$

Daniel took 33 Minutes to run his 4th 5K.
