The 40th anniversary tournament 
Algebra, arithmetic

Once upon a time, grandfather Megamind told his grandchildren the following tale: On the 40th anniversary of their town, a soccer tournament was held in the central park. Five teams played with each other, 3 points were given for a win, and 1 point was given for tie. Each team earned a different number of points. The goal total was 40. But most curiously, a team placed higher scored fewer and gave up more goals than a team placed lower. Could such tournament really have taken place or is it possible that the old Megamind finally felt his age?

Once upon a time, 23 Megaminds decided to play a soccer game. In the process of choosing teams, they observed a curious property: no matter who was elected as a referee, the remaining 22 players could be split into two teams with equal total weight. Is it possible that not all Megaminds weighed equally? Each Megamind weighed an integer number of kilograms.
