Not all players are equally skilled, so let's play with some algebraic inequalities, shall we?
Here's the actual stats sheet for the Spurs starters during Game 7 of
the NBA Finals 2013 (Miam Heat vs San Antonio Spurs on June 20, 2013).
An NBA analyst wrote down the following inequality on the coach's clipboard (their coach is Gregg Popovich, by the way):X's score > Y's score < Z's scoreWhich of the following is a valid combination of players for X, Y and Z? Choose all combinations that fit.
Green, Duncan, Parker
Duncan, Parker, Ginobili
Parker, Duncan, Leonard
Leonard, Green, Parker

6.EE.8 - Inequalities. Represent constraints in the real world.
The way to solve this problem is to plug in the actual scores for each of the choices.
E.g. Let's say one of the combinations is X = Green, Y = Parker, Z = Duncan.
Given the inequality X > Y < Z, is 5 > 10 < 24? Nope.
