Homework Help: Williamsburg

Posted by Amber on Friday, March 9, 2007 at 11:08am.

Kobe Bryant scored 62 points against the Dallas Mavericks in an NBA game. He made 17 of 29 shots. What is his shooting percentage? The answer should be 17%. How do you get that?

I have calculated the answer to be 58.6%. the score was 17 out of 29, so 17 is divided by 29 to give 0.586, this is then multiplied by 100 to give a percentage. I am not sure where the 17% was arrived at. hope this helps.


I agree with ruby. Although it is infrequent, sometimes there are errors in the textbook answer keys.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
