If anyone can help me on this, I would REALLY appreciate it!! [i do check up on this often]

There is an eerie glow in the clearing as the small, strange airships land. Tiny creatures begin climbing out of the airships. There are 2 kinds of creaties: purple creaties with 2 antennas, and blue creatures with 1 large antenna. Altogether there are 23 creatures with 35 antennas.

How many purple and blue creatures have invaded our town?

HELP!! :]

p = purple, b = blue

creatures: p + b = 23
antennas: 2p +b = 35

All yours to wrap up !
