The cost of a pair of soccer boots and a T-shirt is $175. The cost of the T-shirt and a cap is $64. The cost of the pair of soccer boots is 4 times the cost of the cap. How much more does the pair of soccer boots cost than the T-shirt?

Easy...

 

We can simplify this into:

a = soccer boots

b = T-shirt

c = cap

 

a+b = 175

b+c = 64

a = 4c

 

So we can substitute into:

 

4c + b = 175

c + b = 64

 

3c = 111

c = 37

b = 27

a = 148

 

So the soccer boots cost 148-27 = 121 more than the t-shirt.
