1. simple translation from English to Math (after all Math is just a language)

let 1st number be x
let 2nd number be y

x + y = 21

(2/3)x + (3/4)y = 15
multiply each term by 12
8x + 9y = 180

I would use substitution,
from the 1st equation ----> y = 21-x
sub that into the 2nd

go for it, just a few more steps
