Ap physics

The two conditions for equilibrium often result in a system of equations such as
F1 + F2 = 44.0 N
and
3.00F1 − 8.00F2 = 0.
(Due to the nature of this problem, do not use rounded intermediate values in your calculations—including answers submitted in WebAssign.)
(a) Find F1.
N

(b) Find F2.

1. This is the oddest AP physics class I have ever eeen, I assure you, if this is "college" level, you are being mislead. This is Algebra II, systems of equations.

multipy the first equation by 8

I get
11F1=8*44
solve for F1
then, in equation 2, solve for F2
