A basketball player has made 135 free throws in 180 attempts. Of the next 50 free throws attempted, how many would she have to make to raise her percent of free throws made by 5%?
135/180 = 0.75 or 75% of free throws made.
If we have 50 more attempts, that will be
180 + 50 = 230 attempts.
x = number of free throws made or
x/230 = 0.8 (if you want it to be 80%)
x = ? = total number of free throws made. I'll let you take it from here.
