    pick 2 variables: one to represent the number of 5 point problems and another to represent the number of 2 point problems. Equation 1: (number of 5 point problems) + (number of 2 point problems) = number of total problems Equation 2: 5(number of 5 point problems) + 2(number of 2 point problems) = total points on test
