Each Game Players
2 n

5 m
Total Points 50
Case m and n are
1 m - n = 5-2 = 3
m = 0 , n = 1 ; difference 2
m = 1, n = 0 ; difference 5

Can just choose numbers for this.
Let m = 8, therefore points scored from m players = 40 (8x5)
Therefore, n = 5 (5 x 2 = 10) and 40+10 = 50.

Difference between m and n = 3.

You can see that 8 would work for m, but not 9 or 7 (points would be 45, and 5 is not divisible by 2).
