# At the carnival, Nick scored 2 points for each basket. He also received a bonus of 10 points. If Nick's total score was 90 points, how many baskets did he make?

#### Explanation:

If we denote the number of baskets as $b$ the total score can be calculated as: $2 b + 10$. To find $b$ we have to compare this expression with $90$:

$2 \cdot b + 10 = 90$

$2 b = 80$

$b = 40$
