    The number of points the team scored in each game are 23, 23 and 17 points respectively.

    Equation

    There are three basic types of equation in mathematics. Namely:
    • Linear equations
    • Quadratic equations
    • Simultaneous equations
    Total points scored = 63 points
    First game = (x + 6) points
    Second game = (x + 6) points
    Third game = x points
    63 = x + (x + 6) + (x + 6)
    63 = x + x + 6 + x + 6
    63 = 3x + 12
    63 – 12 = 3x
    51 = 3x
    x = 51/3
    x = 17
    Therefore,
    First game = (x + 6) points
    = (17 + 6)
    = 23 points
    Second game = (x + 6) points
    = (17 + 6)
    = 23 points
    Third game = x points
    = 17 points
