In basketball, some baskets are worth 2 points. Others are worth 3 points. In 1 game the ratio of 3 point baskets to 3 point tries for 1 team was 5:7 if the team score 45 points from the 3 point basket how many 3 point tries did the team have

three pointers   were    5 out of    (5+7) = 12    or   5/12 were baskets

 

5/12  of  x tries   resulted in 45 points       45 points means there was 15     '3-pointers'

 

5/12 x = 15      solve for 'x'
