Let the number of  World Series won by New York Yankees be 'N' and Cincinnati Reds be 'C'

N + C =31

N =5.2C

Substituting the value of N in first equation, we get

5.2C + C =31

6.2C =31

C = 31/6.2

     = 5

So N = 31 - C =31-5

                       = 26

Please let me know if you have any other questions and best me if you are satisfactory.
