2 Answer

1. User Answers Equanimity
2x + 10 = 90 is our equation.
2x (x, the amount of baskets he made)
10 (the original bonus)
90 (total points)
Subtract 10 from both sides to get 2x by itself.
2x = 80
Divide by 2 to get x.
x = 40.
Nick made 40 baskets.

Answer: 40 baskets
Why 40 baskets?
If 10 our of 90 points were bonus, than 80 of the points must be from the baskets.
90  10 = 80
We know that nick got 2 points for every basket, so we must find out how many baskets he scored to get 80 points
80 ÷ 2 = 40
Nick scored 40 baskets.

40 baskets, and each are 2 points.
40*2 = 80
90 total, 80 baskets, 10 bonus
80+10 = 90
Final Answer: 40 baskets
