2 (CIE 2012, s, paper 22, question 4)
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.
Target  Difficult  Medium  Easy
Contestant
Claire                           4              1           7
Denise                         2              5            1

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.
