Calorie counting with pie

Using the calorie count of one-eighth of a 9-in. pie, we find that the number of calories in a piece of pecan pie is 221 less than twice the number of calories in a piece of lemon meringue pie. If one eats a piece of each, a total of 865 calories is consumed. How many calories are there in each piece of pie? Please provide a check method.
