    Answer:

    f=17\\p=9\\

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let

    f= Full-time\\p=Part-time

    Full time rates-$275, Part-time rates-$140

    The problem can be expressed as:

    f+p=26...eqtn1\\275f+140p=5935....eqtn2\\

    Express eqtn1 in terms of f,f=26-p

    Substitute f value in eqtn 2.

    =>275(26-p)+140p=5935\\7150-275p+140p=5935\\1215=135p\\p=9\\f=26-9=17\\

    Therefore,  jeds has 17 fulltime and 9 parttime employees.
