Answer:
760 calories
Stepbystep explanation:
Jordan's average is ...
(850 +674 +729 +658 +614)/5 = 705
Then the total number of calories Ben needs to burn in 6 sessions is ...
705×6 = 4230
So far, Ben has burned ...
716 +635 +802 +687 +630 = 3470 . . . calories
So, in his next session, Ben must burn ...
4230 3470 = 760 . . . calories
To have the same average after 6 sessions that Jordan now has after 5 sessions, Ben must burn 760 calories in his 6th session.
