Other answers:

Solve for x or y in one of the equations
x= 25 - 5/2 y ?
x= 5/8 y?
40x+100y=125 100y=-40x+125 y=-2/5x+5/4
ok
Now you know what y is so plug that into the other equation and solve for x 80x+84(-2/5x+5/4)=163
Thx.
right..Understand the theory-just seems overly complicated...usually the numbers are all nice and round and even... 84 times negative 2/5x + 5/4 makes my head spin..
Well fractions just multiply straight across top and bottom....think of 84 as 84/1
Thanks Caleb.
