Five pumpkins are weighed two at a time in all ten sets of two. The weights are recorded as 16, 18,19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26, and 27 pounds. All individual weights are also integers.
How much does each pumpkin weigh?

Based on Brian's ideas, you just plug in A+B =16 and D+E = 26 into 4*(A+B+C+D+E)=216) to figure out C, then figure out B and E, then figure out A and D
