Here are a couple of word problems that are hard to for me to start. If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated. thanks!!

Problem 1:

The sum of 2 numbers is 24. If 2/5 of the larger number is equal to 2/3 the smaller number, find the numbers.

Problem 2:

Luis spent 1/5 of his monthly salary for rent and 1/6 of his monthly salary for his car payment. If $950 was left, what was his monthly salary?

Thanks again!
