  • Answer: The answer is 55 more calories than jordan in the next session

    Step-by-step explanation: So sorry, I am bad at explaining :(

  • Answer:

      760 calories

    Step-by-step 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.
