Jan scored 3 more points in the basketball game than Salah. Cindy scored 22 points, which was twice as many points as Jan. How many points did Salah score?



Cindy scored 22 points which is twice as many as jan. hence jan scored 11 points. salah scored 3 less points than jan. therefore salah scored 8 points.

Let points scored by Salah be x, points scored by Jan be x+3 and points scored by Cindy were 22 as given which was twice or 2 times the score of  Jan
Therefore, ⇒ 22 = 2(x+3) 
                ⇒  \frac{22}{2} = x+3
                ⇒ 11-3 = x
                ⇒ 8= x
so in starting we supposed points of salah as x so x = 8
therefore points scored by salah were 8 and the points of Jan are 11
