let the total no of students is = x ;then the sum of ages of 16 stuidents will be 16*x ; when the teachers age is included then the total ages will be = (16*x + 40)So now the average age of (x+1) = 17 )given in the question) = ( 16*x + 40 ) / (x+1)On solving this equeation we will get x = 23 So the total no of students in th class is 23 .
