please help me !!!

i have a couple of question for people of they are willing to help me please,

1) the equations connecting the running cost of a piece of apparatus,R,and the number of times it is used in one month,N, are

    R=(3N + 15)
         ----------
               8
and

    N=  8R
         -----    -   5
           3     
use these equations to calculate

   a) the value of R when N=27




   b) the value of N when R= 42




   c) the value of R when N=0




this is really getting to me please help thanks to anyone who can yikes)

Re: please help me !!!

Both the equations are the same!
a) When N=27, R=96/12 = 8.
b) When R=42, N= 8*42/3 - 5 = 112-5 = 107.
c) When N=0, R= 15/8


Character is who you are when no one is looking.
