Alright this question seemed similar to the last question i posted so i set it up the same with two equations being

.019x + .069y = 500,000

and then x + y = 27,000 going to y = 27,000 - x

plugging that into my first equation

.019 + .069(27,000 - x) = 500,000

however when i calculate through im getting a negative answer for x

-.05x = 498,137 so x = -9,962,740

Which i know isn't right, this makes me question my co efficients for x & y , but i did try them as they were so instead of .019 and .069 i put in 1.9 and 6.9 but it still worked out to be negative..

If someone could lend a hand, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much
