Question

# A Basketball coach is considering three players for most valuable player . The table shows the proportion of shots each player made of the shots they attempted.a) For a technical foul , the team can pick any player they want to shoot the free throw. Which player should the team pick ?b) Which player is most successful with their field goal shots? Explain.c) Rank the players by the percentage of the 3- point shots each made .d) If all the players attempted the same number of shots , which player would you choose as the most valuable player? Justify your answer.

## The correct answer is: Find the answer from the table provided

### Complete step by step solution:  The team should pick Kimberly. Here Martin = 49.5 % Corey = Kimberly =  0.448So, Martin is most successful with their field goal shots. Here Martin = 32% Corey = 1/3 = 0.33 = 33.33%Kimberly =  0.338 = 33.8%So, Kimberly ranks first, Corey ranks second and Martin ranks third.I would choose Kimberly since he has a good percentage  in all the shots compared to the other 2 players.

In this question, it can be explained further:
A. Kimberly: 0.857 > 4/5 > 71%
Here, Kimberly's free throws have the highest proportion.
B. Martin: 49.5% > 9/20 > 0.448
Here, Martin's proportion of field goals is the highest.
C. Corey: 0.338 > 1/3 > 32%
Kimberly > Corey > Martin
From the above explanation, we can conclude Kimberly is first, Corey is second, and Martin is third.
I'd go with Kimberly because he has a higher percentage on all shots than the other two players.
