in a basketball game, the star player scored 3 times as many points as the average score of the 9 other players. what fraction of the points scored by the entire team did the star player score?

so i guess the total number of players is 10. and then i think you divide something by 10... im not sure. please help

  • math -

    let average of the other nine players be x
    so the total of their points is 9x.
    The star scored 3 times as many points as the average, so he scored 3x points

    team score = 9x + 3x = 12x

    so the fraction of points scored by the star = 3x/(12x) = 1/4
