The diameter of a basketball rim is 18 inches. A standard basketball has a circumference of 30 inches. What is the distance between the ball and the rim in a shot in which the ball goes exactly in the center of the rim? Show your work.
My stuff so far: The required value = ( 18 - d)/2 where d = diameter of the basketball.
What else do I put down??
