Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0She made x number of 3point shots. She made 3 times as many 2point shots, so she made 3x number of 2point shots. She made 8 shots in total, so we have the equation: x + 3x = 8 4x = 8 x = 2 Since x = number of 3point shots, she made 2 3point shots. Then 3x = number of 2point shots, so 3(2) = 6 2point shots. Answer: She made 6 2point shots.
