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

Jackson has 40 points more than Leslie does

Leslie + Jackson = 1202

Let Leslie be X, thus Jackson be (X+40)

X+(X+40) =1202

2X + 40= 1202

2X= 1202-40

2X= 1162

X= 581

Therefore, Leslie had 581 point, whereas Jackson had 621 points
