if you sell short sleeve shirts for 8 dollars but you buy them for 5, and you sell long sleeve shirts for 13 and buy them for 7 and the profit is 1325 but you only spent 2450 how many of each shirt did you sell

Chris, could you try this one please :)

let there be x short sleeve shirts and y long sleeve shirts.

profit will be $3 for each short sleeve and $6 for each long sleeve

so 3x+6y=1325

cost will be 5x+7y=2450

I have tried solving this simultaneously but it does not work.
