Students in a tournament (Posted on 2008-09-05) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Ninth- and tenth-grade students participated in a tournament. Each contestant played each other contestant once. There were ten times as many tenth-grade students, but they were able to win only four-and-a-half times as many points as ninth graders.

How many ninth-grade students participated, and how many points did they collect?

Note: one point for every win.
