Q:
# Brian scored 1/10 of the points for his basketball team in the state championship game. Joe scored 1/4 of the points. Together they scored 21 points. Write an equation to represent the situation. What was the total number of points the team scored?

Accepted Solution

A:

Lets get common fractions between 1/10 and 1/4, so we now have the fractions 2/20 and 5/20. After we add them we have 7/20. If 35% (7/20) of the points scored is 21, then total points scored is 60. (21 / .35)
