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 three-point field goals did she make?

• Algebra 1 -

Didn't know baskets were worth 4 point, did you mean 2 or 3 points?

I will assume that.

number of 2-pointers ---x
number of 3-pointers --- 9

2x + 3(9-x) = 22
2x + 27 - 3x = 22
x = 5

so 5 two-pointers and 4 three-pointers

check"
5(2) + 4(3) = 22
