Let the cost of the game system be \(x\). Since the games cost three times as much as the game system, the cost of the games is \(3x\)

 

Therefore, the total cost of the system and games, \($560\), is \(4x\)

 

\(560 = 4x\)

 

\({560 \over 4} = {4x \over 4} \)

 

\(x = 140\)

 

The game system costs \($140\). The games cost \($420\).
