    I "brute-forced" it in Excel just to see what was going on... there is a solution, but I didn't want to just blurt it out, since your approach should have worked and was more appropriate :)

    |dw:1354575912613:dw|ok that is your y value, just plug that in and find x. No it is not a difficult problem just tedious

    Never mind on my earlier Excel comment... I made a dumb error. I concur with "tedious" though...

    Tedious is a better word for it, rather than dificult - my bad. && I got x = 28.86 and y = 64.86 -- Is that right? lol
