    x + y = 100 .24x + .50y = .36*100

    No, that's just the systems of equations. You still have to find x and y

    I can show you what to do. I can post a vyew. Vyew is a platform with an online whiteboard. It has a voice option which will enable me to communicate with you. If you're interested, I can post a link.

    You don't have to talk. I prefer if you did, but it is not required.

    I know my explanations were weird, but hopefully you got the gist of it. x = 53.8462 gallons y = 46.1538 gallons
