The Kings are beating the Rockets 6543. The Kinds have scored 36 times and have no threepoint baskets. How many two point baskets and how many free throws (one point) have they made?

Forget about the Rocket's score.
Let x = # of twopoint baskets
Ley y = # of free throws
x + y = 36
2x + y = 65 (number of points scored)
x = (65  36) = 29
y = ___
