A student has taken n tests, and has a 90% average.  What score must the student get on the next test to raise the average to 91%?

Current total:  t = n*90

 

next score = s

 

New average   av = (t + s)/(n + 1)   

 

So:  91 = (n*90 + s)/(n + 1)

 

Rearrange to find s.  You will need to know n if you want an actual number for s.
