Average of 12 numbers = 15
Total of 12 numbers = 15 × 12 = 180
Average of first two number = 14
Total of first two number = 14 × 2 = 28
Total of remaining ten numbers = 180 – 28 = 152
Required average of remaining ten number
$\begin{array}{l}
=\Large\frac{152}{10} \\
=\Large\frac{76}{5} \\
=15 \Large\frac{1}{5}
\end{array}$
