Answer:Each girl earned 2 points

Each boy earned 5 points

Step-by-step explanation:Let x represent the number of points one girl earned

Let y represent the number of points one boy earned

4x + 2y = 28

4x – 2y = 12

8y = 40

y = 5 points

4x + (2)(5) = 28

4x + 20 = 28

4x = 8

x = 2 points

Each girl earned 2 points

Each boy earned 5 points
