I don't understand how you question Y to C, All I know is that you have to divide? But how do get the correct answer?? My friend told me the answer is "They could never find another man of his calibre", but they couldn't explain it to me so I couldn't understand. It's very confusing please help me!

How do you do this though? I mean, we all know the answer, but how do you actually DO the math?

3x-y=4
x=4y-17

3(4y-17)-y=4
12y-51=4
11y=55
y=5

x=4(5)-17
x=20-17
x=3
