Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so lets assume he started out with x points.... he lost 10 points seven times means his score x loses 7*10 points... therefore x70 is his new score... then he losses an additional 100 points which means (x70)100 or x170... therefore the change in his score is the difference between his old and new score x(x170)=170
