    if y is the number of tires produced by each person on the staff, then Cy = 50 per hour.

    if the staff increases by 1, they produce 60 tires per houor, i.e if the number of people on staff is C+1, they produce 50 +10 tires per hour. so (C+1)y = 50 +1*10

    if they hire 2 extra people, (C+2)y = 50 +20 or (C+2)y = 50+2*10

    if there are 5 people currently on the staff, and you hire two new people, what will your staff size be?
