An appliance store sells only two brands of refigerator. The ratio of the number of brand X refigerators sold at this store to the number of Brand Y refigerators sold is about 4 to 11. Of the next 100 refigerators the store sells, approximately how many will be brand Y?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't know how to start this one.

I wrote 100 = 4x + 11y

However, I don't know how to solve a two variable equation.
