Yes, but that wasn't always the case. The semi-circular line that runs from extends from either side of the end of the court around the hoop is called the three-point line. Any player who shoots and score from beyond that line scores three points. There are also free-throw combined plays: A made two-point basket and a foul + one free throw = 3 points A missed three-point basket and a foul + three completed free throws = 3 points A made three-point basket and a foul + one bonus free throw = 4 points

Will a credit check ruin your credit score?

No, if you fill out applications to open a line of credit then that will change your credit score but simple inquires of your personal credit score will not ruin it. It is better to keep an eye out on your score and report to make sure no one has opened an account in your name or to dispute anything that doesn't seem right on your report. Always pay your bills on time and more than the monthly payment to increase your score. A Excellent score is above 800 points and 700-799 is a good score.

Try Not To Check Your Credit Score?

It is important to have a good credit score so that you can get financial help for yourself. But before you go checking your score to see what it is, it is important that you understand that you can lower your score each time you check it online. In general, a person loses five points off of their credit score each time they check it. You are only allowed to check this number once a year without worrying about losing anything. The more you check your score, the lower it will become and the more you will hurt your financial stability.

What is the high score in Mario Kart?

The high score would depend on which Mario Kart you are talking about. Also, in some of the Mario Karts, in Multiplayer mode, you can set how many races you want to do. In the Grand Prix on Mario Kart Wii, your maximam score that you can get in points is 60 points; 15 points per race. In Double Dash!!, you can get a Max Score of 40 points. Most every Mario Kart has a Max Score of 40 points. In Mario Kart Wii, if you set the races to 25, your Max Score (let's say you got 1st every time) would be 375 points. It all depends on how many races and which Mario Kart you are referring to.

What steps can I take to raise my credit score?

Pay your bills on time. Pay them early. Pay more than the minimum, and pay off some of your credit cards altogether and close the accounts. If you pay your bills like clockwork, you're never late, and you don't acquire more debt, you should see a major improvement in your score (+100-150 points) in a year or so.

How much does your credit score go up if you pay on time?

It just doesn't go up. If you have always paid on time and kept your debt down, then your credit score will remain consistent. If you've had a few late months and paid on time for a while after that it can rise by as much as 30 points or more, but remember, credit is looked at over TIME.
