20y=17.5x
How can I find x and y

Math! I really need help!  Reiny, Thursday, September 6, 2012 at 10:03pm
There is no unique solution for x and y
pick any x, say x=1
then 20y = 17.5(1)
y = 17.5/20 = .875
so one such solution is (1 , 0.875)
using the above method you can find as many solutions as you like.
