# Testing

Students of high school have 10 points for each good solved task. The wrong answer is deducted by 5 points. After solving 20 tasks, student Michael had 80 points. How many tasks did he solve correctly and how many wrong?

Result

a =  12
b =  8

#### Solution:

a+b = 20
10a - 5b = 80

a+b = 20
10a-5b = 80

a = 12
b = 8
