Candy and boxes

We have some number of candy and empty boxes. When we put candies in boxes of ten, there will be 2 candies and 8 empty boxes left, when of eight, there will be 6 candies and 3 boxes left. How many candy and empty boxes left when we put candies in boxes of nine?

Result

x =  51
y =  11

Solution:

Solution in text x =
