O Logic: born gatekeeper to the Temple of Science, victim of capricious destiny: doomed hitherto to be the drudge of pedants: come to the aid of thy master, Legislation.

Fields of Grain
I have two fields of grain. From the first field I harvest 2/3 a bushel of grain/unit area; from the second, 1/2 bushel/unit area. The yield of the first field exceeds the second by 50 bushels. The total area of the two fields together is 300 square units. What is the area of each field? (Mesopotamia 1500 BCE)
