Explanation:
Given that the average of 5 numbers is 6, their sum is 5×6=30.
Given that the average of the 3 selected numbers is 8, their sum is 3×8=24
So the remaining two numbers add up to 3024=6 and their average is 62=3.

The average of the remaining two numbers is 3.
a+b+c+d+e5=6
5×a+b+c+d+e5=5×6
a+b+c+d+e=30
a+b+c3=8
3×a+b+c3=8×3
a+b+c=24
d+e=3024
d+e2=3
