• At in the video, the problem about the cougar hockey team, it says that the total goals of the season is 36. With that in mind, I am considering that 36 should be the total, so I am thinking [(36-2)/c]+2, since 36 is the total, then the average should not include the 2 more that Matthew scored and then get an average that way. If this is incorrect, can you elaborate in the explanation because the video emphasized 2 more, which is the +2. Thanks for your time!
