    Answer:

    2 point shot = 5

    3 point shot = 2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that:

    Total score = 16

    Total shots = 7

    Let:

    2 point shot = x

    3 point shot = y

    x + y = 7 – – – (1)

    2x + 3y = 16 – – – – (2)

    From (1):

    x = 7 – y

    Put x = 7-y in (2)

    2(7 – y) + 3y = 16

    14 – 2y + 3y = 16

    14 + y = 16

    y = 16 – 14

    y = 2

    x = 7 – 2

    x = 5

    2 point shot = 5

    3 point shot = 2
