At a basketball game, a team made 57 successful shots. They were a combination of 1- and 2-point shots. The team scored 99 points in all. Write and solve a system of equations to find the number of each type of shot.
x + y = 57 x = 2 pt shots y = 1 pt shots
2x +y = 99 I think you can solve this system..... From the first equation y= 57-x substitute this into the second equation...and proceed
