I just started the 5th grade and I don't understand one of my math problems.

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?)

Yes. Your question doesn't make any sense -- at least for a 5th grader.

Ok, thank you. I will ask my teacher tomorrow if he left part of the question out.

The price of the belt was definitely omitted from the question, because with it being unknown, you cannot figure the price of the shirts.
