Solution

To maximize the number of points scored by the team that finishes 5th, we need to minimize the points scored by the last 3 teams.

Matches played by the last 3 teams =3C2×3=9

Points scored by the last 3 teams =9×4=36

Total points of the tournament = 336

Remaining points = 336-36 = 300

Maximum points scored by the team =3005=60 points

Matches played by the last 3 teams =3C2×3=9
