Greep Hooke was never so nervous about performing before an audience. His patron invited five of his friends to watch him do his much acclaimed juggling act. Of the five, two were mathematicians from MIT where his patron is a benefactor, one is a famous movie actress, another is a Nobel Prize winner for Physics, and the last is a World Champion athlete.

Greep did his best and afterwards thought he did the performance of his life.

After the guests had left, his patron showed him a piece of paper which contained the ratings. It read:

Mr. A= 28

Ms. B= 10

Mr. C= 300

Mr. D= 6

Mrs. E= O

Greep asked his patron whether a common rating scale was used by the guests. His patron just smiled.
