A store sold 40 baseballs and 14 softballs over a two-week period. The sales for these items totaled $200. What was the price of one baseball?

We could have many answers for this, NG.....to see why

 

Let the price of a softball =  $10

Then the price of a baseball  =   [200 - 14*10 ] / 40  = 60/40  = $1.50

 

But.....suppose the price of a softball is $5

Then the price of a baseball =  [ 200 - 14*5] /40  =  130 / 40  = $3.25
