**drwls**, Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 2:05amYou don't mention his free throws made. If that number is zero, solve these equations:

x = number of 3-point shots made

y = number of 2-point shots made

3x + 2y = 55

x = 0.2(x+y)

5x = x+y

y = 4x

3x + 8x = 55

x = 5

y = 20

Total Shots attempted = 3x + (5/4) y

= 15 + 25 = 40
