An exam worth 145 points contains 50 questions. Some of the questions are worth two points and some are worth five points. How many two point questions are on the test? How many five point questions are on the test?

Let x = number of 2pointquestions; then 50x = number of 5pointquestions. 2x + 5(50  x) = 145 Let's see you wrap that up, Max
