A basketball team scored 60 points in the first game and 50 points in the second game. How many points did the team score in the third game if their mean score for the 3 games was 51 points?
For the mean score of 3 games to be 51 points, they must have scored 3 x 51 = 153 points.
After two games, they have already scored 60 + 50 = 110 points.
Therefore, they need to score 153 - 110 = 43 points.
