Say the number of balloons in a small bouquet is x and the number in a large bouquet is y.

The equations we have are

7x+8y=193 and

8x+2y=92.

On the second equation, isolating y we get 2y=92-8x or y=46-4x.

Plug that in our first equation to get

7x+8(46-4x)=193.

7x+368-32x=193

-25x+368=193

-25x=-175

x=7

Now that we have x, we can solve for y.

8(7)+2(y)=92

56+2(y)=92

2(y)=36

y=18.
