    For 15 rounds of games they played,

    If Tim win 7 games, the marks he will get

    = 7x4+(15-7)x(-1)

    = 28-8

    =20

    If Tim win 8 games, the marks he will get

    = 8x4+(15-8)x(-1)

    = 32-7

    =25

    If Tim win 9 games, the marks he will get

    = 9x4+(15-9)x(-1)

    = 36-6

    =30

    If the score of Tim was less than 30 marks, max. no. of rounds that Tim can won is 8. Therefore,

    the least number of rounds that Jack won

    = 15-8

    =7 nos. of rounds

    If the question becomes ".... If the score of Tim was less than or equal to 30 marks ....", the least number of rounds that Jack won = 15-9 =6 nos. of rounds.
