100-80=20 100-90=10 (100-30,25,15,20= 10)

its okay i still believe your a smart person
Nevermind. I'm retarded. I'm calculating 75% as 25% and I don't know why. PLEASE DISREGARD.
I'd edit it but the edit feature isn't working properly for some reason.

I think this is the answer but would be interested for someone to confirm.
T = total number of soldiers
N = number of different types of injuries
X[i] = number of soldiers injured for each injury (index i from 1 to N)
Z = minimum number of soldiers with all N injuries
Z = (T - (N)(T)) + summation i=1 to N (X[i])
for this problem
Z = (100 - (4)(100)) + 70 + 75 + 80 + 85 = 10

Indeed, however, gangreen could claim more body parts.
this is only a puzzle, just stick with what it gave you, and dont think about all the other possibilities of gangreen etc

I think that the answer is 70 because the question is not well stated enough for the answer to be logically 10.
Maybe if it was 100 'out of' the answer would be 10.

This is super easy. If the least common injury totals 70, it cant exceed that number because if only 70 had injury A and B,C, and D are more than that, the average of those becomes 77.5 but bearing in mind only 70 had A and 75 had B, it can only be the least.
