• # question_answer The average of 5 consecutive even numbers is 28. What is the sum of the largest number and the square of the smallest number? A)  603                 B)  612 C)  608                 D)    605

$x+x+2+x+4+x+6+x+8=5\,\,\,\,\,28$      $\Rightarrow$ $5x+20=140$      $\Rightarrow$ $5x=120$ $\Rightarrow$ $x=\frac{120}{5}=24$     $\therefore$ Largest number      $=x+8=24+8=32$      $\therefore$ Required sum $=32+{{(24)}^{2}}$      $=32+576=608$
