**Reiny**, Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 11:11pmexplanation for 5th grader without using variables ??

one shirt cost $3.50 more than the other

so if we reduced the cost of the the more expensive by $3.50, they would have cost the same.

But then we should reduce the total by 3.50

--- 30.50 - 3.50 = $27

since they now cost the same, we simply take half of 27 which is 13.5

check:

cheaper shirt -- 13.50

more expensive shirt --13.50+30.50 = 17

total cost = 13.50+17 = 30.50
