For each division, start by evaluating the team with the worst performance and work your way up. As soon as you arrive at a team that has an Elimination Number greater than or equal to 5, you know you can stop without testing any of the teams in that division with better records. In the East Division, start with Team E. Team E has 87 losses. Team A, the division leader, has 87 wins. 87 + 87 = 174 and 163 - 174 = 211. This is less than 5, so you should select choice (C). Team D has 68 losses. Team A, again, has 87 wins. 68 + 87 = 155 and 163 - 155 = 8. Team D’s Elimination Number is greater than 5, so eliminate choice (B). Team C has a better record than Team D, so it has a still larger Elimination Number, and (A) can be eliminated. In the West Division, start again with the team with the worst record, here Team Z. Team Z has 85 losses. Team W, the division leader, has 77 wins. 85 + 77 = 162 and 163 - 162 = 1. This is less than 5, so select choice (E). Team Y has 73 losses. Team Z, again, has 77 wins. 73 + 77 = 150 and 163 - 150 = 13. Team Y’s Elimination Number is greater than 5, so eliminate choice (D).

The answers are (C) and (E).

Hi. Sorry for the redundant question but where is it mentioned that Team E has 87 loses and Team A leads the division? Thanks
