Henry made 6 identical necklaces, each having beads and a pendant. The total cost of the beads and pendants for all 6 necklaces was $31.80. If the beads cost a total of $14.40, how much did each pendant cost?

Let the cost of each pendant is x then the cost of

6 pendant is 6x.

Given each necklaces has a pendant

Hence, the cost of pendant for all 6 necklaces is 6x

Given, the cost of total beads is $14.40

Hence, the total cost of the beads and pendants of

all 6 necklaces is 6x + $14.40.

Given, the total cost of the beads and pendants of all

6 necklaces is $31.80

Hence 6x + $14.40 = $31.80

           => 6x = $17.40

           =>   x = $2.90

Hence, the cost of each pendant is $2.90
