1.6.2: Real life problems leading to simultaneous equations

Many real life problems require for their solution the finding of two unknown quantities. The general method of solution is similar to that used when there is one unknown but with the important difference that when there are two unknowns to be found, two equations must be formed from the data, which can be solved by either matrix inversion or Cramer's rule as shown in the above examples.
