In the first 12 overs of a one day cricket game, the run rate was only 3 What should be the run rate in the remaining 38 overs of a one day match to reach the target of 282 runs?

## Answer/Solution

6.47

### Steps/Work

Runs scored in the first 12 overs = 12 × 3 = 36

Total runs = 282

Remaining runs to be scored = 282 - 36 = 246

Remaining overs = 38

Run rate needed = 246/38

=6.47

Total runs = 282

Remaining runs to be scored = 282 - 36 = 246

Remaining overs = 38

Run rate needed = 246/38
