Home team scored 9 runs in all
Let,
x=the runs scored in the first three innings
so,
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow{x}+{x}+{5}={9}$$
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow{2}{x}+{5}={9}$$
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow{2}{x}={9}-{5}$$
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow{2}{x}={4}$$
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow{x}=\frac{{4}}{{2}}$$
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow{x}={2}$$
