    Answer:

    They make 27 two points basket.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    Kelly’s basketball team made a total of 33 two points and three point baskets in their game last week.

    If her team scored a total of 72 points.

    Now, to find the number of two points baskets they make.

    Let the two points basket be x.

    And the three points basket be y.

    So, total number of two points and three point baskets are:

    x+y=33

    y=33-x\ \ \ .........(1)

    Now, the total points team scored:

    2x+3y=72

    Substituting the value of y from equation (1) we get:

    2x+3(33-x)=72

    2x+99-3x=72

    Subtracting both sides by 99 we get:

    2x-3x=-27

    -x=-27

    Dividing both sides by -1 we get:

    x=27.

    The the two points basket = 27.

    Therefore, they make 27 two points basket.
