Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.
Total snowfall = 25inches
february = f (since we don't know how much)
january snowfall = nine more than February = f + 9
We add January and February snowfall for the total
f +9 + f = 25
combine like terms
2f + 9 =25
subtract 9 from both sides
f =8 inches for February
january was 9 more inches which makes 17 inches
