## Number of Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineers and Their Average Ages

**Problem**

In an organization there are CE’s, EE’s and ME’s. The sum of their ages is 2160; the average age is 36; the average age of CE’s and EE’s is 39; the average age of EE’s and ME’s is 32 and 8/11; the average age of the CE’s and ME’s is 36 and 2/3. If each CE had been 1 year older, each EE 6 years and each ME 7 years older, their average age would have been greater by 5 years. Find the number of CE, EE, and ME in the group and their average ages.

## System of Equations

## System of Linear Equations

The number of equations should be at least the number of unknowns in order to solve the variables. System of linear equations can be solved by several methods, the most common are the following,

1. Method of substitution

2. Elimination method

3. Cramer's rule

Many of the scientific calculators allowed in board examinations and class room exams are capable of solving system of linear equations of up to three unknowns.
