Homework Help: Math

Posted by Sunshine on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 9:52am.

Mr. Logan purchased $390 in clothing (excluding sales tax). He bought 5 identical shirts, 3 identical pairs of pants and 2 identical pairs of shoes. Each pair of shoes cost twice the combined value of one shirt and a pair of pants. Each pair of pants cost $10 more than one shirt.

Use let statements to express the cost of each item and relationship to each other.Write the equation to represent the situation.

Find the cost of 1 shirt, 1 pair of pants, 1 pair of shoes.



Help - I don't know how to use the let statements. Have already figured out the cost of each item (1 shirt is $20, 1 pants $30, 1 shoes $100)
