    Let the number of correctly answered questions be \(x\). Then the number of incorrectly answered questions is \(20 -x\). The number of points you get on this test is given by \(5x -2(20 - x)\). Can you solve the inequality \(5x - 2(20 - x) > 0\)?

    \(7x - 40 > 0\). Now what are the values for \(x\)? When you get that, find the values for \(20 - x\). You'd get your answer
