## Help!

Hi guys! I have one math problem, I cannot solve. Please help me out. Here's the question:

**"How can the number 39 be divided into two parts in order that the sum of 2/3 of one part and 3/4 of the other part is 28?"**

I think you need to make some equation to solve this problem, but I cannot make a proper equation, please help me out.
