You have two variables, but only one equation.....therefore, you will have infinite answers for x, y

NOPE... actually i figuered out how to solve it over a good bit of time and thought...

you actually have to solve for y first using anither equation from the diagram...

 

6x+y=x+5y

subtract 5y from both sides

-4y=5x

divide by -4

y=5/4x plug that into the equation for y

 

(4x)+(6x+5/4x)=180˚ ->

45/4x=180˚ ->

720/45

x=16

 

plug that into the equation...

4(16)+6(16)+y=180˚

64+96+y=180˚

170+y=180˚

y=10

so...

(x y)=(16)(10)

(x y)=160

OMG!! Paging Dr. Tud, emergency, come right away!

There is a new strain of CDD on here: CDD:BB –Contagious Dumbness Disease:Blarney B. This strain is a close variant of CDD:BS   Both of these strains mutated in a family of gnomes –E.F Gnomes in particular.    You may be patient zero. Try not to infect anyone else.

A MOTHER'S LETTER

Dear Son.
Just a few lines to let you know that I’m still alive.  I’m writing this slowly because I know that you can’t read fast.  You won’t know the house when you come home, we have moved.

About your father.  He’s got a lovely new job.  He has 500 men under him.  He cuts grass at the cemetery.  Your sister Mary had a baby this morning. I haven’t found out yet whether it’s a boy or a girl so I don’t know if you are an aunt or an uncle.

I went to the doctors on Thursday and your father came with me.  The doctor put a small tube in my mouth and told me not to talk for 10 minutes.  Your father offered to buy it from him.  Your uncle Patrick drowned last week in a vat of Irish whiskey at the Dublin brewery.  Some of his workmates tried to save him but he fought them off bravely.  They cremated him and it took three days to put the fire out.

It only rained twice this week, first for 3 days then for 4 days.  We had a letter from the undertaker.  He said if the last payment on your grandmother’s plot wasn’t paid in 7 days, up she comes 

                             Your loving mother.

P. S.  I was going to send you 5 pounds but I have already sealed the envelope.

I don’t understand why someone put this letter here. What does it have to do with this posts?  

 

Also what are E. F. Gnomes?  

 

I don’t get any of this.
