Place the students in order and identify the winner. Paulin went before Ayla and rowen. Ayla shot right after Noep. She made her throws before Morristo and Rowen.

  1. Let P be the shooting order of Paulin
    Let A be the shooting order of Ayla
    Let N be the shooting order of Noep
    let R be the shooting order of Rowen
    let B be the shooting order of Belino
    Let M be the shooting order of Morristo

    P<A
    P<R
    A = N+1
    A>M
    A>R
    B is not = 1
    B is not = 4

    The following order satisfies those requirements:

    1 2 3 4 5 6
    P R B M N A

    I did it by "trial and error" and moving things around.
