Alg. 2 prob

On Friday, the With-It Clothiers sold some jeasn at $25 a pair and some shirts at $18 each. Receipts for the day totaled $441. On Saturday the store priced both items at $20, sold exactly the same number of each item, and had receipts of $420. How many pairs of jeans and how many shirts were sold each day?

This is how far I got:

Jeans = J
Shirts: = S
J = $25
S = $18
Total of money: $44

i don't know what to do next. please help. thanks

1st day
25J+18S=441

2nd day
20J+20S=420

Now you have two equations with 2 unknowns.
