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.
