The ratio of the number of shirts to the number of caps that Remus had was in the ratio 8:5. The cost of each shirt was $20 while the cost of each cap was $4. The total cost of all the items was $900. How many caps did Remus have at first?

s/c = 8/5

s = 8/5 c

 

8/5 c * 20    +     c * 4 = 900

c = 25        then s = 40
