Enter the number of two-pointers, three-pointers, and free throws made into the calculator to determine the total basketball score.

## Basketball Score Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the total basketball score:

TS = (2P * 2) + (3P * 3) + FT

Variables:

- TS is the total score
- 2P is the number of two-pointers made
- 3P is the number of three-pointers made
- FT is the number of free throws made

To calculate the total basketball score, multiply the number of two-pointers made by 2, the number of three-pointers made by 3, and then add the number of free throws made.

## What is a Basketball Score?

A basketball score is the total number of points a team accumulates during a game. Points can be scored through two-point field goals, three-point field goals, and free throws. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.

## How to Calculate Basketball Score?

The following steps outline how to calculate the total basketball score:

- First, determine the number of two-pointers made (2P).
- Next, determine the number of three-pointers made (3P).
- Next, determine the number of free throws made (FT).
- Use the formula from above to calculate the total score (TS).
- Finally, calculate the total basketball score.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Two-pointers made (2P) = 12

Three-pointers made (3P) = 7

Free throws made (FT) = 9
