Question

Let the least of these 5 numbers be x.

Then the largest of these 5 numbers will be x + 10.

If we have to maximize the largest of these numbers, we have to minimize all the other numbers.

That is 4 of these numbers are all at the least value possible = x.

So, x + x + x + x + x + 10 = 200

Or x = 38.

So, the largest of these 5 integers is 48.
