## Homework Statement

**Background knowledge:**

In a very simplified SAI allocation system, the top student is awarded 400, the bottom student is awarded 200 and the remainder of the cohort is given a whole number score beetween these values (reflecting their position in the cohort).

Across the state, OP's (overall positions) are awarded according to the following approximate percentage breakdown. the top 2% of students receive an OP of 1; the next 19% receive an OP 2-6; the next 73% receive an OP 7-21; the next 5% receive an OP 22-24; and the final 1% receive an OP 25.

**QUESTION IS AS FOLLOWS:**

Consider a cohort of 15 students. investigate possible SAI allocations with the gloal of achieving the best possible OP results for your cohort.
