  • help its urgent - ,

    Its something I need to have.

  • Math - ,

    5b+9m=150.5

    9b+5m=175.7 if you add them you have one equation.
    14b+14m=326.2
    14(b+m)=326.2
    b+m=23.3
    b=23.3-m
    sub. this back into one the original equations
    9(23.3-m)+5m=175.5
    209.7-9m+5m=175.5
    -4m=-34.2
    m=8.55
    Plug that into the other equation
    5b+9(8.55)=150.5
    5b+76.95=150.5
    5b=73.55
    b=14.71
