Driving Mad

Midway through his round of golf, Gary hits a 241 yard drive, which brings his average length per drive for his round from 205 to 209 yards.

How far would he have had to hit the drive to bring his average length of drive up from 205 to 211 yards?

  1. You can figure from the information provided that his average of 205 yards came after his eighth drive.

    Big Hint:

    Eight times 205 gives the total sum of yards midway through his round of golf. The difference between that and the total sum of yards where the average after nine drives is 211, will give you the length of that ninth drive.
