Lucy made 2 identical necklaces, each having beads and a pendant. The total cost of the beads and pendants for both necklaces was 13.80 . If the beads cost for 3.50 each necklace, how much did each pendant cost?

#1**+2 **

Let p be the cost of each pendant.

Since there are two necklaces, we can subtract 2(3.50) from 13.80 (assuming that 3.50 is the cost of all of the beads per necklace) - which gives us 6.80.

Since there are two pendants, we divide 6.80 by 2 which gives us **3.40** as the cost for each pendant.

Hope this helped!
