studying for my test, I have a truss joint equation with 2 variables

ƩFx = 0 : 4/15 (15kN) - 10/10.44(Fbd) - 4/5(Fbe) = 0

12 = .957(Fbd) + .8(Fbe)

ƩFy= 0 : 3/5 (15kN) - 6kN - 3/10.44(Fbd) + 3/5(Fbe) = 0

6 = 9 -.287(Fbd) + .6(Fbe)

-3 = .287(Fbd) + .6(Fbe)

this is where I'm stuck. I'm unsure what math move to make next to solve Fbd or Fbe.

I'm unsure, any help would be appreciated
