He measured the volume of 10 twigs and found the average volume was 3.5 ml. Before he completed the calculations, he discarded one measurement because he thought the twig was the wrong species. After discarding the twig he obtained, a new average volume of 2.7 ml. What must have been the volume of the twig he discarded?
