At a concert, a band sold t-shirts for $18 and hats for $12. They sold 60 t-shirts and hats combined for a total of $870. How many t-shirts did they sell? How many hats?

Let x be the number of t-shirts sold. Let 60-x be the number of hats sold. They have a total cost of 870. We form an equation:

18x+12(60-x)=870

18x+720-12x=870

6x+720=870

6x=150

x=25

**25 t-shirts** were sold and 60-25=**35 hats.**
