Hi Xiao Min. welcome to SKORA!

The answer is just 80 I believe? As students with the mean mark added/removed from the data group will not affect the new mean.

Let’s say a data group (marks) of 70, 80, 90 will give a mean of 80.
When a student with mark of 80 is added, the mean will still be 80.
Similarly when the student with mark of 80 is removed, the mean is still 80.

If the answer is not 80, let me know.
