1. Answer:

He played 40 matches in total, scoring 32 goals.

Step-by-step explanation:

Since after a certain number of football matches, a footballer averages 1 goal per game, and he only scored 2 goals in the next 10 games and his average dropped to 0.8 goals per game, to determine how many football matches did he play altogether you must perform the following calculation:

10/10 + 2/10 = 12/20 = 0.6

8/8 + 2/10 = 10/18 = 0.55

12/12 + 2/10 = 14/22 = 0.64

20/20 + 2/10 = 22/30 = 0.73

24/24 + 2/10 = 26/34 = 0.76

30/30 + 2/10 = 32/40 = 0.8

Thus, he played 40 matches in total, scoring 32 goals.
