    175(x+y)=5200
    y=2x+7

    175(x+2x+7)=5200
    525x+1225=5200
    525x=3975
    x=3975/525 or 5.5714

    im probably wrong tho as i just skimmed through it but check my work and see if its right

    edit: this gives you the devin's hourly rate i think... i hate math -.-

    The decimals seem highly unlikely because its a job with a hourly wage... I've gotten that too, but it just doesn't work :|
