Let x be the sum of the 1st and 2nd number.
Let y be the sum of the 3rd and 4th number.

X+y=48 (sum is 48)

X/2 (ave of the 1st and 2nd number) = 2(2 times) * y/2 (ave of the 3rd and 4th number)

Thus,
X/2=y

X=2y (equation 1)
X+y=48 (equation 2)

Substitute eqn 1 into 2,
2y+y=48
3y=48
Y=16
X=2(16)=32

Finally,
X= 1st number + 2nd number
X= 18 + 2nd number =32
2nd number =14

1st and 2nd no. = 2u
3rd and 4th no. = 1u
Total sum of 4 no. = 48
3u = 48
1u = 48/3
= 16
2u = 16*2
= 32
2nd no. = 32-18
= 14

Ans: 14

We know that the average of 1st and 2nd numbers is 3 times the average of the 3rd and 4th numbers.

Students should be able to infer that this means that the sum of the 1st and 2nd numbers is also 3 times that of the sum of the 3rd and 4th numbers. Since both sides will be multiplied by the same amount to find the sum (×2).
