The number of points a student gets on an exam is directly proportional to the number of multiple-choice questions he or she answers correctly, and also to the square of the number of essay questions he or she answers correctly. What is the score of a student who answers 20 multiple-choice questions correctly and 6 essay questions correctly?
1. A student who answers 15 multiple-choice questions correctly and 2 essay questions correctly scores 24 points higher than a student who answers 12 multiple-choice questions correctly and 2 essay questions correctly.
2. A student who answers 15 multiple-choice questions correctly and 3 essay questions correctly scores 20 points higher than a student who answers 5 multiple-choice questions correctly and 5 essay questions correctly.
