Mandy scored 22 points in a basketball game. If she made 9 field goals, worth either 2 or 4 points, and no free throws, how many threepoint field goals did she make?

Reiny,
Didn't know baskets were worth 4 point, did you mean 2 or 3 points?
I will assume that.
number of 2pointers x
number of 3pointers  9
2x + 3(9x) = 22
2x + 27  3x = 22
x = 5
so 5 twopointers and 4 threepointers
check"
5(2) + 4(3) = 22
