    Answer:

    Free throw: 139

    2 pointers: 173

    3 pts: 123

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Set x equal to the number of 3pts scored.

    Then get 2x-73 from the given number of 2pts relative to 3pts.

    Then get 2x-107 from the given number of free throws.

    Set up an equation in reference to the number of 3pts and multiply by pts for each type to get:

    3x+2(2x-73)+1(2x-107)=854

    where 3x is pts from 3pts

    2(2x-73) is pts from 2pts

    1(2x-107) is pts from free throws.

    Simplify to get:

    9x-253=854

    Solve:

    9x=1107

    x=123.

    Then plug in the number of 3pts scored into the other numbers.
