## Answers

## BettieZumbrunnen

x + y = 34.5

xy = 297

From the first one . . . y = 34.5 - x

Plug that into the second one . . . x(34.5 - x) = 297

Eliminate parentheses . . . 34.5x - x² = 297

Bend that around and tidy it up . . . x² - 34.5x + 297 = 0

Apply the quadratic formula to that, and find . . .

x =18

x = 16.5
