Question:

Steve played in 14 basketball games. He scored a total of 53 field goals (2 points each), and 20 free throws (1 point each). What was his average score per game?

A 9
Explaination

This problem has several steps. To begin, you need to determine the number of points he scored. The 53 field goals give him 53 × 2 = 106 points. Adding on the 20 free throws gives him 126 points. The average per game is 126 ÷ 14 = 9 points.
