In a basketball game, Marlene made 16 field goals. Each of the field goals were worth either 2 points or 3 points, and Marlene scored a total of 39 points from field goals.
Let x represent the number of 2point field goals and y represent the number of 3 point field goals. Write a system of equations, in terms of x and y, to model the situation.
x = the number of 2point field goals
y = the number of 3 point field goals x + y = 16 {she made 16 field goals} 2x + 3y = 39 {2 points times x plus 3 points times y equals the total of 39 points} Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
