    Point of Intersection problem

    Say I have two lines:
    9x = 2y = 23
    and
    3x + 7y = -7
    Find the point of intersection, I am stuck, I can't seem to get it right, I just end up with fractions as the answer.
    How would I do this?

    The first "equation" is not a line.

    And why do you think having fractions would be an incorrect answer?
