Waiting room

In the waiting room are people and flies. Together they have 15 heads and 50 legs (fly has 6 legs). How many people and flies are in the waiting room?

Result

x =  5
y =  9

Solution:

x+y=14 2x+6y=64 x=5x+y=14 \ \\ 2x+6y=64 \ \\ x = 5
y=9y = 9

x+y=14
2x+6y=64

x+y = 14
2x+6y = 64

x = 5
y = 9
