Word problem #3

3.) You play basketball for Sargent Park. You've scored 24 points over the 5 home games and 28 points over the past 7 away games. Now figure out your: Average points per game at home, your average points per game on the road, and your total average points.

Do you score more basket per game at home or away?

Answer
-24 points divide 5 games is 4.8 points and that's how you get the average per game at home.
-28 points divide 7 games is 4 points and that's how you get the average points per game on the road.

-28 points plus 24 points equal 52 points 7 games plus 5 games equal 12 games
-52 points divide 12 games equal 4.333

So we score more baskets per game at home because the average points at home is 4.8 and the average points away is 4 points.
