Mainly I can't figure out is this is two problems in one or just one.

**Steve**, Monday, September 23, 2013 at 1:05pmIf the two numbers are x and y, we have

3x+2y = 43

2x-y = -4

The main problem as I see it is what "Find the number" means. Which number?

**Callianna**, Monday, September 23, 2013 at 1:24pmThank you. That confirms what I thought. I'm not sure what it means either. We have been working with graphing so I wonder if it means find both x and y.

**Steve**, Monday, September 23, 2013 at 3:09pmThat would be my guess. It probably should have read "Find the numbers."

So, did you find x and y?
