Yuki's age is four years more than onefourth of Xena's age. Xena's age is 21 years and 6 months more than seveneighths of Yuki's age. How old are Xena and Yuki? Thank you.

y = 1/4x + 4
x = 7/8y + 21.5
Substitute 1/4x+4 for y in second equation and solve for x. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for y. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
