obviously the first 19 numbers would have to be the least possible and different from each other in order for the 20th to be maximum.
so let 19 of the nos be 1, 2, 3, …., 19
let the max no be x.
now avg= sum/20= 20
or sum= 400
or x+(1+2+...+19)= 400
but 1+2+...+19= 19*20/2= 190
so x= 400 – 190
x= 210
kindly approve :)

Dear student
 
greatest number = 400 – ( 19 lowest terms ) = 400 – (1 + 2 + 3 + ….......+19)
 
 = 400 – 19*20/2 = 400 – 210 =190
 
Hope it helps
