William spent $384 to buy some T-shirts and shirts. The cost of a pair of shorts was $12 and a T-shirt cost $3 more than the shorts.

 

If the number of shorts he bought was 3/4 as many as the number of T-shirts, how much did he spend on the T-shirts?

Shorts cost 12 dollars. 

T shirts cost 15 dollars. (12+3)

x = number of t shirts

3/4x = number of shorts

 

15x + (12)(3/4x) = 384

24x = 384

x = 16

 

He bought 16 t shirts, 15 dollars each, for a total of 240 dollars.
