  1. Field goal: +2 points
    Free throw: +1 point
    ---------------------
    Total score: 56 points
    Total attempts: 35 times

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    2g+1t = 56
    g + t = 35

    Use elimination or substitution to solve.

  2. Oops. Let's revise the equations, I didn't notice the last sentence.

    2x + 1y = 56
