The problem is Mr. Smith bought 2 similar T-shirts and a belt. He paid $100 to the cashier and received $13 in change. Find the cost of each T-shirt. (shouldn't the price of the belt be in the question?)

**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, August 10, 2011 at 7:43pmYes. Your question doesn't make any sense -- at least for a 5th grader.

**coursonc**, Sunday, August 28, 2011 at 1:54amThe price of the belt was definitely omitted from the question, because with it being unknown, you cannot figure the price of the shirts.
