The AMC 10 and 12 contests consist of 25 questions. Students receive 6 points for each correctly answered question, 1.5 points for each question left blank, and 0 points for each incorrect answer.

Phyllis took the AMC 12. She answered 20 questions and got 16 of them correct. What was her score?

20 questions answered means  25 - 20 = 5 UNanswered     5 x 1.5 = 7.5 pts

        16 correct     16 x 6 = 96 points

         4 INcorrect    = 0                                                96 + 7.5 = 103.5 pts

She gave up on 5 questions because 25 - 20 = 5,

1.5 * 5 = 7.5 = points off blank

16 correct, 16 * 6 = 96

96 + 7.5 = 103.5

if you mean how many points for the score than 103.5 is ans

max score is 25 * 6 = 150

103.5/150 --> 69/100

if you mean percent than ans is 69%
