    For this equation, you want to do it in fractions/ratios to properly solve it. You would have his average misses out of every field goal and his real missed attempts over total. It would look like this

     \frac{2}{11}   =    \frac{8}{x}

    You want to solve for x since x is the total amount of field goals that he attempted. You can do this by doing cross multiplication:

    (2)(x) = (8)(11)

    From here you can get:

    2x = 88

    Divide each side by 2 to isolate x and you get:

    x=  44

    So he made a total of 44 field goals.
