Answer:

#35#

Explanation:

If Ezra made #70%# successful free throws out of #50#, we can make a fraction out of it-

#7/10#

Now let's change the denominator to match the number of free throws, #50#.

#?/50#

If we multiply the denominator #(10)# by #5# to get #50#, we should multiply the numerator too

#7 xx 5 = 35#

so our final answer is #35# free throws out of #50#.
