Let x = number of tires produced by 1st shift

Let y = number of tires produced by 2nd shift

x + y = 3066

y = (10/4)x - 70

x + (10/4)x - 70 = 3066

(4/4)x + (10/4)x = 3066 + 70

(14/4)x = 3136

x = 3136(4/14) = 896

x + y = 3066

896 + y = 3066

y = 3066 - 896

y = 2170

1st shift produced 896 tires

**2nd shift produced 2,170 tires**
