Tadeo volunteered at the library 6 times as many hours over the weekend as Dylan. Together, they volunteered a total of 14 hours. How many hours did each person volunteer over the weekend?
Write a system of equations that represents the situation. Let x represent Dylan's hours, and let y represent Tadeo's hours.

Correct answer:

x =  2 h
y =  12 h

Step-by-step explanation:

y=6x x+y=14  y=6 x x+y=14  6xy=0 x+y=14  Row261 Row1Row2 6xy=0 1.17y=14  y=1.1666666714=12 x=60+y=60+12=2=2 h  x=2 y=12
