 A B C First  round 160-(20+40)=100 140 120+(160-120)/2   =  140 120 80+ (16-80)/2 = 120 Second round 100+ (140-100)/2  = 120 140 – (20+10)=110 120+(140 -120)/2 =130 Third round 120 + (130-120)/2 =125 110+ (130-110)/2  = 120 130- (10+5)=115 Fourth round 125 – (25+5) =117.5 120 – (125-120)/2 = 122.5 115(125-115)/2 = 120
