    Answer:

    40

    Step-by-step explanation:

    given the fact that mary made 85% of her free throws attempts,

    thus she missed the rest 100 minus 85= 15% of the attempts. let the total number of attempts be x. thus:

    15% of x=6

    15/100 x=6

    solve by cross multiplying

    x=6  100/15

    x=40

    hope this helps
