BasketballsAlgebra Level 3
It is the basketball playoffs, and your favorite team is in. However, you were very busy, and you missed the first half of the game. While driving to your friend's house to watch the game, he calls you and tells you that your favorite player has made a three point shot. After you arrive at your friend's house, you see that the score is 32-29, your team's favor. Your friend decides to give you a trick math test: Our team has scored on 18 shots. They have made a least double the amount of two-point shots as they have free-throw shots. How many free-throw, two-point, and three-point shots have been made? After thinking a while, you give an answer. How many of each shot have been made? Express your answer as the following: free throws=x, two pointers=y, and three pointers=z. Write your answer as xyz, no space in between.
