The Good Sport
by Randall L. Whipkey
When Buzz of Buzz's Exxon gathered his 2001 records for his CPA, he found
that he had made six donations, each for a different amount of money and
totaling $1500, to six local youth sports teams, including a softball
team. Given the data below, can you find how much in sports deductions
Buzz has for 2001: the contribution to each team and the sport the team
- Buzz donated twice as much to the basketball team as he did to the
- The contribution to the Comets was less than that to the football
- For his donation to the soccer team, which was $50 more than he gave
the Rovers, the soccer team advertised Buzz's Exxon on the back of
jersey # 1.
- The Lions got $150 more from the service station operator than the
baseball team did.
- The smallest donation of the six was for $50.
- The Hawks received twice as much money from Buzz as the soccer team.
- Before actually seeing the receipts again, Buzz thought that his
largest donation had been $600 and that he had given the hockey
team $250; he found that the largest contribution was for less than
$600 and that the hockey donation was for less than $250.
- Buzz gave the Knights $50 more than he gave the Devils.
- The largest donation wasn't the one to the youth basketball team.
