A comic costs $3 and a mystery series costs $5 each.If Ken spend all his money on the comics, he has $6 left. If he wants to buy the mystery series, he needs another $8. How many comics or mystery books is Ken buying? How much money does he have?

7 books

$27

 

3x + 6= 5x - 8

3x - 5x = -14

-2x= -14

x= 7 books

he has (3×7)+6= $27
