A contest score calculator is programmed to mark students' contest. The contest has 25 questions. Correct answers are worth 6 points. Omitted questions are worth 2 points. Incorrect answers worth 0 points. How many different scores are possible in this contest?
Largest score. - 6 * 25 = 150
Score with nothing answered - 2 * 25 = 50
Lowest score - 0
From 0 - 50 we have 50/2 = 25 possible scores because the points go up by 2.
From 50 - 150 we have 150 - 50 = 100, then since the points up by 4. (6 - 2 = 4)
100/4 = 25
25 + 25 = 50 possible scores
If you want to say an answer is wrong guest you are expected to say why you believe this to be so.
he is the same guest that posts homework questions.
Apparently my answer was wrong, but he doesn't know why because he didn't take time to understand my method, and simply plugged in the answer I got.
Then he gets mad at us for giving wrong answers, and that he didnt get full points on his "homework".
So basically he is this greedy jerk that blames you for his own problems
sure, i am quite triggered at failing the AMC 8 , but Guest, you really should stop being a garbage, sub-human, lower life form.
Hi CalculatorUser and guest.
Guest does know why he thinks it is wrong.
Most likely because his book or his teacher says it is wrong.
If he has the answer that he believes is correct he should provide it. (Even if it just a number with no explanation)
Guest: It is extremely rude just to put the word 'wrong'
You need to say why and you should thanks the answerer for their time and interest in your question.
Hey. CU did not have to do that at all, YOU should be appreciative and explain KINDLY what you think he did wrong don't just barge into people's faces and say "wROnG" it is a VERY rude and unkind thing to do.
In fact i think instead of making people do your work for you, you should actually try to work it out yourself. Trust me it will benefit you. You will learn the material better and get more practice.
and CU is not making YOU fail. YOU are making YOURSELF fail, by asking others to do problems for you. It's as if i sat behind a car and said ok i am going to fly a plane when i dont even know how to drive a car.
Don't blame others for your problems when they are trying to help you. If you think he's wrong do it yourself and compare your answer with his, and then kindly explain what he did wrong or ask how this problem works.
I think I'll think some more about this one! Hmmmmmm ....
