It's D. 6
Because if she made 2 three point shots and it's 3 times as many two point shots
2 x 3= 6
6 plus 2= 8
so 6 is the answer
She made x number of 3-point shots.
She made 3 times as many 2-point shots, so she made 3x number of 2-point shots.
She made 8 shots in total, so we have the equation:
x + 3x = 8
4x = 8
x = 2
Since x = number of 3-point shots, she made 2 3-point shots.
Then 3x = number of 2-point shots, so 3(2) = 6 2-point shots.
Answer: She made 6 2-point shots.
