    Answer:

    a) The salary of the department head is $42,000

    b) The salary of the president of the university $168,000

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given

    Let x be the salary of one of the department of head

    President salary is four times of one of the department of head

    So 4x is the salary of the president.

    The total of the two salary is $210,000

    than x+4x=$210000

    5x=210000

    x=\frac{210000}{5}

    x=42000

    salary of one of the department heads is x

    Therefore the salary of one of the department heads is $42,000

    president salary = 4x

    president salary = 4\times42000

    president salary = 168000

    Therefore the salary of one of the department heads is $42,000

    and the salary of the President is = $168,000
