5-44.

Shooter Magee is the Wolverines’ best free-throw shooter. He normally makes three out of every four shots. In an upcoming charity event, Shooter will shoot $500$ free throws. If he makes over $400$ baskets, the school wins $\1000$. Should the Wolverines expect to win the cash for the school? Show and organize your work.

Set up a proportion with the information given.

$\frac{3}{4}=\frac{x}{500}$

Solve for $x$.

Multiply both sides by $500$.

$x=375$
No, he will not make enough baskets.
