Answer:

2 point shot = 5

3 point shot = 2

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that:

Total score = 16

Total shots = 7

Let:

2 point shot = x

3 point shot = y

x + y = 7 – – – (1)

2x + 3y = 16 – – – – (2)

From (1):

x = 7 – y

Put x = 7-y in (2)

2(7 – y) + 3y = 16

14 – 2y + 3y = 16

14 + y = 16

y = 16 – 14

y = 2

x = 7 – 2

x = 5

2 point shot = 5

3 point shot = 2
