End total same as starting total

Malcolm and Maddie are studying for an exam.  Maddie posed 24 review questions.  As motivation, Malcolm will receive 7 pennies for every correct answer and will lose 5 pennies for every incorrect answer.  At the end of the session, Malcolm's total was the same as his starting total.  How many questions did Malcolm answer correctly?

Badly worded question.  Not enough info about Malcolm's "starting total"?
