Q:
# Rashawn and Jessie are playing a game where they lose the same number of points that they would have earned for each incorrect answer. Rashawn answers two 3-point questions incorrectly, and Jessie answers four 2-point questions incorrectly. If neither player has answered a question correctly, who is ahead?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Rashawn is ahead.Step-by-step explanation:Given,Rashawn answers two 3-point questions incorrectly,So, the change in his/her points = 2 Γ -3 = -6( Negative sign shows loss )While, Jessie answers four 2-point questions incorrectly.
