10-72. Each morning, Jerry delivers the Times to one neighborhood and then the Star to a different neighborhood. While delivering the Times, Jerry delivers 2 papers per minute. However, since the Star is so heavy, he can only deliver 1 Star paper per minute.

Let x represent the number of Times delivered, and y represent the number of Star papers delivered.
