    Craig = p points
    Marla = 2p points
    Nelson  =   2p + 5 points

    Hello!

    Craig p= points scored
    Marla 2p=points scored
    Nelson 2p-5= points scored

    Therefore with no numbers to use we just get an simple equation for Nelson’s score.

    Nelson score= 2p+5 where p equals Craig’s score.

    Hope this helps! Any questions please ask! Thanks!
