    Basically she had a week to do this and put it off. Family can't figure it out came to me. she's in 8th grade so I imagine it's algebra 1. Looking for the equation used to solve this.
    Football team score 18 points. How many different ways could this have come about.
    Obviously you have
    2-safety
    3-field goal
    6-touch down
    7-touch down point conversion
    8-touch down 2 point conversion
