Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0haha ok: x+y = 350, solve it for y y = 350  x Then plug into the second equation and solve for x value: 3x + 5(350 x) = 1450 3x + 1750  5x = 1450 2x + 1750 = 1450 1750 on both sides 2x = 300 /2 on both sides x = 150 Now plug in to first equation: 150 + y = 350 y = 200
