Dan scored a total of 252 points in 28 basketball games. Rainn played 10 fewer games than Dan. Her scoring average was 0.5 points per game higher than Dean’s scoring average. How many points, in total, did Rainn score?

So we create the equation ((252/28)-0.5)*(28-10) and sthat simplifys to (9+0.5)*18 which when we simplify further we get 9.5*18=171 so the answer is 171

Dan scored a total of 252 points in 28 games; this average is 252/28  =  9 points per game.

 

Rainn played in 10 fewer games:  28 - 10  =  18 games.

Her average was 0.5 points per game higher than Dan:  9 + 0.5  =  9.5 points per game.

 

18 games at 9.5 points per game  =  18 x 9.5  =  171 points.
