    *  Well since all three members are out for a brisk walk…they could find some random guy and tell their salary individually and ask him to calculate the average , which will be an easy task but if this option is not available then,

    *  Member 1 will add a random number to his salary and tells the sum to Member 2
    Member 2 will again add a new random number to the number provided by Member 1 and share it with member 3
    and further Member 3 will add another random number and say it to member 1
    Now member 1 will subtract his random number from the total sum provided by Member 3 and member 2 will do the same ….and continude by  member 3…
    So now you have the their total salaries  …divide by 3 to find the avg.
