(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:

2x-y=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

2x-y=42

2(24)-y=42

48-y=42

y=48-42

y=6

or substituting to eq.2

x+y=30

24+y=30

y=30-24

y=6

therefore

jenny got 24 correct answers and 6 incorrect answers.
