**PsyDAG**, Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 2:17pmlet x = 2-pt shots and y = free throws

x + y = 17, therefore x = 17-y

2x + y = 28

Substitute 17-y for x in second equation and solve for y. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for x. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
