PLEASE HELP!!!
In a basketball free-throw shooting contest, the points made by Sam and Wilbur were in the ratio 7:9. Wilbur made 6 more points than Sam. find the number of points made by each...... I'm so confused

  • Math -

    sam made 21
    wilbur made 27
    7x+6=9x
    6=2x
    x=3
    7x3=21
    9x3=27
    27-21=6
