    Answer:

    They make 31 two point shots and 6 three point shots.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    The meridian girls basketball team scored a total of 80 points in a basketball game.

    Now, to find the two point shots and three point shots they make.

    Let the 2 point shots be x.

    And let the 3 point shots be y.

    So, the total baskets:

    x+y=37

    x=37-y  ….(1)

    And, the total points:

    2x+3y=80

    Substituting the value of x from equation (1):

    2(37-y)+3y=80\\\\74-2y+3y=80\\\\74+y=80

    Subtracting both sides by 74 we get:

    y=80-74

    y=6

    The 3 point shots = 6.

    Now, substituting the value of y in equation (1):

    x=37-y\\\\x=37-6\\\\x=31.

    The 2 point shots = 31.

    Therefore, they make 31 two point shots and 6 three point shots.
