Answers for Sheet # 195
Carlos is the overall winner. He was first in two out of 4 events ( 100-m dash and 400-m relay). Maria came first only in one event (rope skipping). Kim did not come 1st in any event. Stu came first only in one event (sit-up). You can also assign points. For example,
First: 4 points
Second: 3 points
Third: 2 points
Fourth: 1 point
If you add these points for each event for each student, you will arrive at the same result.
