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?

-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.
