6-15.

Shooter Marilyn is the Spartans’ best free-throw shooter. She normally makes three out of every four shots. In an upcoming charity event, Shooter will shoot $600$ free‑throws. If she makes over $400$ baskets, the school wins $\1000$. Should the Spartans expect to win the cash for the school? Show and organize your work.

Set up a proportion with the information given.

$\frac{3}{4} = \frac{x}{600}$

Solve for $x$.

Multiply both sides by $600$.

$x=450$

Yes, she will make enough baskets.
