In Fairlawn, there are 5000 households with an average of 2.26 people per household. Of these households, 1400 are single-person households and the rest are multiple-person households.

On average, how many people are in each multiple-person household?

On average, how many people are in each multiple-person household?

 

5000 households have average of 2.26 people in total there re  5000*2.26= 11300 people

11300-1400= 9900 people in multiperson households

5000-1400 = 3600 multiperson households

so

 

9900/3600 = 2.75

So there are an average of 2.75 people in the multiperson households   laugh
