Solution(By Apex Team)

According to the question, Average age of 40 students of class is = 18 years Let the average age of 20 new students = x years $$\begin{array}{l}\therefore\left[\Large\frac{40\times18+20\times x}{60}\right]=\left(18+\frac{1}{2}\right)\text{ years }\\ \Rightarrow\Large\frac{720+20x}{60}=\frac{37}{2}\\ \Rightarrow\left[\Large\frac{720+20x}{30}\right]=37\\ \Rightarrow20x=390\\ \Rightarrow x=19.5\end{array}$$ ∴ Average age of newly admitted students is = 19.5 = 19 years 6 months
