DO you know how to solve simutaneous equations in two variables via substitution or elimination?

 

3L + 5S =133

12L + 2S = 253     Multiply top equation by -4   then add it to the second equation ....this will allow you to solve for S

                                    use this value of S in oneof the equations to solve for L
