Nancy and warren are making large pots of chicken noodle soup. Nancy opens 4 large cans and 6 small cans of soup and pours them into her pot. Her pot contains 115 ounces of soup. Warren opens 3 large cans and 5 small cans of soup. His pot contains 91 ounces of soup. How many ounces of soup does each large can and each small can contain?

4L +6S =115  (1)

3L+5S = 91    (2) 

subtract (2) from (1), 

L+S = 24     (3)

(1) - 4*(3), 

2S = 115-4*24 = 19 

S = 9.5 

L = 24-9.5 = 14.5
