I got this question from a website.

Three watermelons and two cantaloupes weigh 32 KG. Four watermelons and three cantaloupes weigh 44 KG. All watermelons weigh the same and all cantaloupes weigh the same. What is the weight of two watermelons and one cantaloupe?

By drawing model we end up with one watermelon and Cantaloupe weigh (32+44)76 KG. how to find the weight of each water melon and cantaloupe?

Step 1) W+W+W+C+C = 32

Step 2)W+W+W+W+C+C+C= 44

please help me in solving this
