Thank You, Declan for answering my question, but I am still haiving trouble on the problem, could you explain to me of how you went about getting the answer -55/4, in deeper detail.
If you want to avoid fractions, you might want to look at my solution to your question when you first posted it
You could take my equation
9x - 8y = 110
8y = 9x - 110
divide by 8
y = (9/8)x - 110/8
y = (9/8)x - 55/4
and end up with the same equation that Declan had at the end
I much prefer my method to working with all those factions.
Thank You Reiny for your help, I accidentally posted the question under the other student's question, I apoloigze.
