**JJ**, Monday, February 11, 2013 at 7:13pmLet x = cost of each shirt

let y = cost of each pair of pants

4x+3y = $85.50

3x + 5y = $115.00

You can use the Addition/Elimination method to solve this problem. You have to eliminate one of the variables. You can multiply the top equation by -3 and the second equation by 4. This will cause the x's to be eliminated.

You can then solve for y. Once you have y, go back into one of the original equations to solve for y.

Be sure to check your answers in both of the original equations.
