How do I solve this?

This problem seems like it would be pretty straightforward, however, it is proving to be quite difficult for me to solve. I am having trouble setting it up because whenever I set it up and solve, I end up with the wrong answer. Super frustrating! If someone could post a step-by-step response showing how to solve this that would really help me out. Thanks!
