# Tractors

Wheel and belt tractors each day plow 8 ha of fields. For plow 76 hectares, the wheel would have to work for 12 days and 8 days with the belt tractor together. How many hectares do each day of each tractor?

Result

a =  3
b =  5

#### Solution:

76 = 12a + 8b
8 = a+b

12a+8b = 76
a+b = 8

a = 3
b = 5
