Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was watching lectures on Quantum Computing another day and I came up with a problem. I talked to my school teachers about it but everyone seemed to dodge my question except for one, my math team teacher who told me that without assuming anything it cannot be solved. Or we can take the lowest possible value and the highest, divide by 2 and that would be the average, or at last get 100 workers out of infinity and that would make an average of all.

Here's the problem:

What is the average of salaries of infinite number of workers, knowing that their salary can be any real number between 10 and a 1000?

What do you guys think about it?

Is it possible to solve it in any way? Or at least dig the problem to "average in terms of something"?

Thanks :)
