Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Call the number of points Kurt scored p. Then Kyle scored (1/5)p+4. Since Kyle scored 12, we have
(1/5)p+4=12

(1/5)p=8
p=40
So Kurt scored 40 points.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
