To solve verbal problems with systems of linear equations we will construct the system of equations based on the text of the problem.

- We will start by pointing out what we are asked to solve for in the unknowns $X$ and $Y$.
- Based on the conditions met by $X$ and $Y$ in the verbal problem we will write down the relevant equations with the corresponding numbers and unknowns.
- After drawing the equations appropriate to the problem, we can solve them in the algebraic way: through the substitution method or the equalization method, in this way we will solve for the two unknowns.
