    the first question is simultaneous equations, let me get u started

    4T + 1S = 175 ;
    2T + 2S = 161

    work out the area of each square and each triangle, from there you can go and work out the lengths.

    So would the answer be...
    7 for the side length of the square and for the height of the triangle is 9?
