In a competition the contestants search for hidden targets which are classed as difficult, medium

or easy. In the first round, finding a difficult target scores 5 points, a medium target 3 points and

an easy target 1 point. The number of targets found by the two contestants, Claire and Denise, are

shown in the table.

Contestant

Claire 4 1 7

In the second round, finding a difficult target scores 8 points, a medium target 4 points and an

easy target 2 points. In the second round Claire finds 2 difficult, 5 medium and 2 easy targets

whilst Denise finds 4 difficult, 3 medium and 6 easy targets.
