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
