**DrBob222**, Saturday, July 9, 2011 at 7:16pmI would do this.

x+y = 9.0

0.50x + 0.20y = 3.90

------------------Multiply eqn 1 by -(1/2).

-0.50x - 0.50y = -4.50. keep eqn 2 as is.

0.50x + 0.20y = 3.90

-----------------------Now add the two. You see the x term cancels. Solve for y, then substitute y back into one of the equation and solve for x.
