Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The number of games sold by Chris = [tex](\frac{g}{8} - 17)[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:The total number of employees in the team = 8The total number of games sold by the whole team = gThe number of games sold by Chris = Average Games sold by each member - 17Now, [tex]\textrm{Average number of games sold by each} = \frac{\textrm{Total number of games sold by team}}{\textrm{Total number of people in team}}\\[/tex]=[tex]\frac{g}{8}[/tex]⇒The average number of games sold by each of the team member = g/8Hence, the number of games sold by Chris = [tex](\frac{g}{8} - 17)[/tex]
