Let the lengths in inches be represented by the uppercase initials, J,K,M,T, and the weights in pounds by the lowercase initials, j,k,m,t.
use(2) to conlude that
From m-k=2 and m+k=2, calculate m and k.
"Tim's fish was the longest and one of only two fish that were of equal weight." =>
t≠m, otherwise j=k.
Likewise, t≠k, otherwise j=m.
The shortest fish was 1 foot 5 inches (17") long. =>
Read and understand the above carefully, solve for all the variables, and post if you have questions.
