The original  total of the numbers will be    80 n

then remove one number, 100 and the average becomes 78

  the new total will be   78 (n-1)        which is 100 less than the old total  80 n

    soo   78 (n-1) = 80n - 100

             78n-78 = 80n - 100

                   22 = 2n

                     n=11
