Jean surveyed 25% of all eighth graders and 75% of all 7th graders. John surveyed 50% of all eighth graders and 50% of all 7th graders at the same school.
Jean surveyed a total of 152
John surveyed a total of 144
What is the number of eighth graders?

if there are x 7thgraders and y 8thgraders,
.75x+.25y=152
.50x+.50y=144
(x,y) = (160,128)
