    Arithmetic mean :

    ( p1 + p2 + p3 + p4 + p5 ) / 5 = 21 Multiply both sides by 5

    p1 + p2 + p3 + p4 + p5 = 21 * 5 = 105

    p1 + p2 + p3 + p4 + p5 = Total points of team

    Total points of team = 105

    If 4 other players obtained 1 point

    greatest score of one player could be :

    105 - 4 = 101
