Let's focus on the first equation:

Multiply both sides by 100 to move the decimal 2 places to the right. This will make every number a whole number

Distribute and multiply

So our first equation is now
Equation 1:

Now let's focus on the second equation:

Multiply both sides by 100 to move the decimal 2 places to the right. This will make every number a whole number

Distribute and multiply

So our second equation is now
Equation 2:

Now let's solve the new system of equations
