# How does the scoring algorithm in the quiz works?

The scoring algorithm for the quiz is as following:

The first question is worth 100 points. Every next question is worth more points, and these extra points increase with a 100 for every question. So every question becomes more valuable, see the first column below (question points).

Then you have a time bonus. This way you get more points when you answer more quickly. It's a multiplier of the points that a question is worth and the maximum multiplier is 0.8.

See the example below for an indication of the maximum score for a quiz with 7 questions!

Question | Points | Time bonus | Final Score |

1 | 100 | 80 | 180 |

2 | 300 | 240 | 720 |

3 | 600 | 480 | 1,800 |

4 | 1,000 | 800 | 3,600 |

5 | 1,500 | 1,200 | 6,300 |

6 | 2,100 | 1,680 | 10,080 |

7 | 2,800 | 2,240 | 15,120 |
