1. Number of points shoot, x=17

Number of free shoot, y=7

Step-by-step explanation:

Let us consider,

point shoot as x

free shoot as y.

Question say ” A basketball player scored 24 times during one game ”

Therefore, Number of point shoot + Number of free shoot = 24

Numerically we get,

x+y=24

Now, Free shoot gives one point and point shoot gives two points.

She scored total of 41 points.

2x+y=41

we get two equations

x+y=24

2x+y=41

By solving above linear equations…

we can write, y=24-x

replacing y value in 2x+y=41

2x+24-x=41

x=17

To find value of y, replace x vaule in any equation

say, x+y=24

17+y=24

y=7

Thus, x=17 and y=7

Number of points shoot, x=17

Number of free shoot, y=7
