    looks like you are solving

    15e-8 + e = 24

    and

    78.75 = 9.75d + 20

    what did you get?

    Answer for #1 is Elizabeth is 2 and Lyn is 22

    For #2 am not sure for this one, please solve

    Thanks

    78.50 = 9.75d + 20
    78.50 - 20 = 9.75d
    9.75d = 58.50
    d = 58.50/9.75 = 6

    so he rented the canoe for 6 days
