Felipe's school is hosting a math competition against other schools in the same district. Each school can only allow 10 students to compete. Felipe and his classmates are taking tests to determine the 10 best math students to send. Felipe did well, but tied with John Roy for the last spot. His teacher decided to set-up a one-problem challenge, whoever got it right the fastest would win.

Knowing that "H" is equal to 10, and T is half of M, how could MATH be 42, TEAM be 40, and MEET be 37?

MATH: 14 + 11 + 7 + 10 =42
TEAM: 7+8+11+14 =40
MEET: 14+8+8+7=37

(H=10; E=8; T=7; M=14; A=11)

Felipe answered his question just seconds before John Roy, sending him to the competition.
