    Answer:

    75

    120

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the first mechanic’s hourly rate = x

    Let the second mechanic’s hourly rate = y

    x + y = 195

    15x + 5y = 1725        Divide this equation by 5

    3x + y = 345             Write the first equation below this one. Subtract

    x   + y = 195

    2x = 150                    Divide by 2

    x = 150/2

    x = 75

    ====================

    x + y = 195

    75 + y = 195

    y = 195 – 75

    y = 120
