Multiplechoice questions in a test are graded by adding 2 marks for each correct
response and subtracting 1 mark for each incorrect response (including no response).
Rory and Jenny answered all the multiplechoice questions, with Rory scoring 27 and
Jenny scoring 42. Rory answered 19 questions correctly.

a.Rory
(19 correct ans X 2) 38
Rory's score 27
equals (incorrect ans)11 pts deducted
therefore
19 correct + 11 incorrect = 30 questions
b.jenny
Let x= correct answers
y= incorrect answers
equations:
2xy=42 eq1(which is the score of jenny)
x+y=30 eq2(total no. of items)
use elimination method
then:
3x=72
divided both sides by 3
x=24
substituting to eq.1
2xy=42
2(24)y=42
48y=42
y=4842
y=6
or substituting to eq.2
x+y=30
24+y=30
y=3024
y=6
therefore
jenny got 24 correct answers and 6 incorrect answers.
