Is that the exact question?

My answer is 2, because 50*2+100*3=80*5=400..... but i'm beginning to doubt that this is some kind of trick question. Is it?

I think two is the right solution because:

50+50+100+100+100=400

400/5=80

So in order to get average of 80 max 2 players can recieve score 50 and rest of team must have full 100 in that case.
