A farmer plans to plant 270 acres of his farm with wheat and soybeans. For every 2 acres of land planted with soybeans, the farmer wants to plant 7 acres of land with wheat. The farmer uses the following system of equations to determine how many acres of each crop he should plant.

w + s = 270

7s - 2w = 0

w is the number of acres planted with wheat, and s is the number of acres planted with soybeans.

How many acres should the farmer plant with soybeans?

I came up with 52

Is this correct?
