Let  the  number  of 2 point shots  made   =  N

 

Then the number of 3 points  shots  made  =  35 - N

 

And we  have  this

 

2N + 3(35 - N)  =  79      simplify

 

2N + 105 - 3N  =  79       subtract 105 from each side

 

-1N  =    -26        divide throug by -1

 

N =  26  =  the  number of 2 point shots

 

35 - N =   35 - 26  =  9  =  number of 3 point shots
