System of equations? I hope this is the correct place to post this. I have 4 equations with 4 unknowns. Let's assume the lower case letters represent different numbers that are known constants. A = B/s B = C/t C = D/u A + B + C + D = 10 Can anyone give me some hints on how to solve this? Thanks!

just get any 4 numbers that equal 10: as example, 1,2,3,4: A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4. A = B/s : s = B/A = 2/1 = 2 B = C/t : t = C/B = 3/2 C = D/u : u = D/C = 4/3

B=C/t=D/(ut) A=B/s=D/(stu) D[1 + 1/u + 1/(ut) + 1/(stu)] = 10 I assume you can go from here.

Any way that you've been taught (or can find) to solve simultaneous linear equations would have worked.
