    Question Java Loops Question

    Is there a more efficient way of programming this:

               if( c == 1 )
                {
                   Points = 10;
                }
                else if( c == 2 )
                {
                    Points = 20;
                }
                else if( c == 3 )
                {
                    Points = 30;
                }
                else if( c == 4 )
                {
                    Points = 45;
                }
                else if( c == 5 )
                {
                    Points = 60;
                }
                else if( c == 6 )
                {
                    Points = 75;
                }
                else if( c == 7 )
                {
                    Points = 95;
                }
                else if( c == 8 )
                {
                    Points = 115;
                }
