1. 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
• 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
