Michelle went to buy a shirt and a tie for her father as a birthday gift. 5 ties cost the same as 3 shirts. 5 ties and 3 shirts cost a total of $2850. How much more did a shirt cost than a tie?

5 t = 3s     

 

5 t + 3s  = 2850    sub in the red equation

3s + 3s = 2850

6 s = 2850

s = 475          

       5t = 3 (475)

         t = 285                  s - t = 475 - 285 = 190 dollars more for a shirt
