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
http://www.jiskha.com/display.cgi?id=1328440122
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.
