Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15t + 7r = 823 t 137 = r 5t + 7(t137) = 823 5t + 7t(7)137) = 823 13t = 823 + 7(137) t = (823 + 7(137))/13 = 137.08/5 = 27.42 maybe? i might have a wrong interpretation in my equations tho

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.114r = 823  137 r = 49 then.... 5t = 7(49) + 137 t = [7(49) + 137]/14 = 96 then
