# help!!! another math word problem!!!?

In a game of basketball, a goal is worth 2 points, while a free throw is worth 1 point.

In one game, Graydon scored 18 points while Phil scored 14 points. Phil scored 3 times as many free throws as Graydon, but only half as many goals. How many goals did each of them score?

Update:

pf = 3gf

2pg = gg

pf+2pg = 14 gf+2gg = 18

3gf+gg = 14

3gf+6gg = 54

--------------------------

5gg = 40

gg = 8 goals done by Graydon

phil scored half of them so 4 goals

phil: 4 goals

Graydon: 8goals
