Step 1
Given,
Vonna scored 75 goals in her soccer kicking practice.
Her succes - to - failure rate is 5:4
Let, total number of successful attempts of Vonna $$\displaystyle={5}{x}$$
and, total number of unsuccessful attempts of Vonna $$\displaystyle={4}{x}$$
Step 2
According to the question,
$$\displaystyle{5}{x}={75}$$
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow{x}={\frac{{{75}}}{{{5}}}}={15}$$
Total goals attempted by Vonna $$\displaystyle={5}{x}+{4}{x}={9}{x}={9}\times{15}={135}$$.
Vonna attempted a total of 135 goals.
