Let's assume that the five players are called A, B, C, D, and E and that they are listed in increasing numerical sequence of the points scored.
So, A = Amanda who scored the fewest points and she had to have scored at least 10 points.
B = Kara who scored 16 points.
The others we don't know yet. So we can write:
because the average score is 16 and each player scored more than 9 points.
Multiply both sides by 5.
Subtract 26 from both sides.
Now we know that each player scored a different number of points, so player C must have scored at least 17 points and let's assume that players D and E scored 1 point more than the previous player, so we get:
So we can say that Amanda scored 10 points!
