I need help with partitions again. I have attached a copy of a

First tip - if you set a delay of, say, two seconds, it gives you time
to minimise the screenshot utility window, which makes for more useful
screenshots. As it is, I'm not sure it's obscured anything overly
This Dell notebook came with 8.1 installed. I do not want it any
more. I have 9.10 installed in both English and Spanish (so I can
teach it here in Panama).
You can use multiple languages on a single install, which is likely to
be easier for you.
I do not know how to get rid of 8.10. I > can not delete it, it
appears, though I have not tried from a live USB (another problem).
Since the 8.10 is not mounted I figure I should be able to delete it
and expand the data partiion no problem.
How are you trying to delete it? What exactly happens? What error
messages come up?
Also, which partition is what? It's hard to tell from that screenshot.
trying to delete it using gparted. It simply will not allow that option. I
am trying to do it within 9.10 (english version) since I can not get gparted
to install on USB storage devices and I am concerned that since 8.1 is
installed on sda/1, deleting it may cause me to ahve to reinstall
