why didn't the circus managers want their human cannonball to quit?

You'll find out after you correctly solve the problems.

hint: caliber

i so dislike you now^ i cant find this one out either and you give a hint really?

x+y=2

I don't understand how you question Y to C, All I know is that you have to divide? But how do get the correct answer?? My friend told me the answer is "They could never find another man of his calibre", but they couldn't explain it to me so I couldn't understand. It's very confusing please help me!

Idk

They Couldn't find a man with his caliber haha

X+y=2

They could never find another man of his calibre

How do you do this though? I mean, we all know the answer, but how do you actually DO the math?

3xy=4
x=4y17
3(4y17)y=4
12y51=4
11y=55
y=5
x=4(5)17
x=2017
x=3
Answer(3,5) 
Y=x/2
