Examination 2

In an examination, a teacher awards 2 marks for every correct answer and subtract a mark for every wrong answer. If there are 20 questions and a child scored 25 marks how many correct answer did the child get?

Correct result:

c =  15

Solution:


25 = 2c - 1•(20-c)

25 = 2•c - 1•(20-c)

3c = 45

c = 15

Our simple equation calculator calculates it.
