Robert is a high school basketball player. In a particular game, he made some three point shots and some free throws (worth one point each). Robert made a total of 9 shots altogether and scored a total of 23 points. Write a system of equations that could be used to determine the number of three point shots Robert made and the number of free throws he made. Define the variables that you use to write the system.

Answer=
 three point shots = 7

  free throws = 2

 

Analysis = Suppose he made x three point shots, and y free throws 

                It can be know from the title.

                 { x + y = p        { x = 7

                 {  3x + y = 23 =>    {  y = 2
