In a game, the Bulls score a total of 103 points and made three times as many field goals (2 points each) as free throws (1 point each). They also made eleven 3 points. How many goals did they have?

103=3(2)+ 1 + 11(3)

would this equation be right?

No, that is not right.

Let the number of free throws be x.

There are 3x two-point field goals, and 11 from "downtown" (3 pointers).

103 = 11*3 + 2*(3x) + x

70 = 7x

x = 10 free throws

3x = 30 is the number of two-point "field goals"
