The hypotenuse of a right triangle is 2 ft less than three times the shorter leg. The longer leg is 3 ft. less than three times the shorter leg. Find the length of the shorter leg.

He understands that this goes by the Pythagorean Theorem a^2 + b^2=C^2 and c is the hypotenuse, b is the longer leg, and a is the shorter. That is all he understands. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
