Each of the 10 players on the basketball team shot 100 free throws, and the average number of baskets made was 75. When the highest and lowest scores were eliminated, the average number of baskets for the remaining 8 players was 79. What is the smallest number of baskets anyone could have made? Answer is 18

The ten players averaged 75 baskets each, for a total of 750 baskets.

The eight players averaged 79 baskets each, for a total of 632 baskets.

The other two players made a total of 750 - 632 = 118 baskets. This is the sum of the highest number, which obviously must be 80 or above, and the lowest number.

What is the most that the highest player could have made? Then what is the least that the lowest player could have made?
