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.
