Step 1
Given: Math test scores are 68,78,90 and 91.
To find: The next lowest score on the next test and still achieve an average of at least 85.
Solution:
Average marks is given by formula:

Let marks scored in next be x.
Total number of test including next will be 5.
Therefore,
Average = sum of marks in test/number of test
$85=\frac{68+78+90+91+x}{5}$
$85×5=327+x$
$425=327+x$
$x=425-327$
$x=98$
Step 2
Hence, least marks required to achieve average marks of 85 is 98.
