Best Answer

Field Goal (FG) percentage can be determined by diving the field goals made by the field goals attempted. For instance, if a player makes 5 field goals out of 8, then his/her field goal percentage is 62.5%. The field goal percentage is composed of all field goals made--whether a two-pointer or three-pointer. A player's three-pointer percentage is three-pointers made divided by three-pointers attempted. You can find a player or team's field goal percentage in the NBA section of any sports website or listed in the sports section of most U.S. newspapers.
