    Answer: 9 5pt questions

    Step-by-step explanation:X+Y+Z=44

    1X+3Y+5Z= 120

    Y=2X-10

    X+3(2X-10)+5Z= 120 X+6X+5Z= 120. 7X+5Z= 120. Multiply top row by -3

    X+2X-10+Z=44. 3X-10=44. 3X+Z= 54. Multiply bottom row by 7

    -21X-15Z= -450

    21X+7Z=378

    -8z= -72

    Divide by -8

    z=9

    15 one pt questions+ 20 3 pt + 9 5 pt = 120 pts

    15+20+9=44 questions
