(a) *T *= 3*x *+ 2*y *+ *f, where x=12, y=15, f=7*

* = 3(12) + 2(15) + 7*

* = 36 + 30 + 7*

* = 73*

(b) 36 = 3x + 2(5) + 5

36 = 3x + 10 + 5

36 = 3x + 15

asked • 02/13/20The formula *T *= 3*x *+ 2*y *+ *f *can be used to calculate the total number of points made in a basketball game where:

*x *= number of three-point goals

*y *= number of two-point goals

*f *= number of free throws made

*T *= total number of points

a) Find the total number of points for a game where 12 three-point goals, 15 two-point goals and 7 free throws were made.

b) Find the number of three-point goals made if the total number of points was 36 with 5 two-point goals made and 5 free throws made.
