The cost of 4 scarves and 6 hats is $52. The cost of two hats is $1 more than the cost of one scarf. What are the costs of one scarf and one hat?

Please show me how to set this up and work it.

4s+6h = 52

2h = 1+1s

so, now we know that

6h = 3+3s, so

4s+6h = 4s + 3+3s = 7s+3, and

7s+3=52

7s=49

s=7

so, 2h=1+s = 1+7 = 8, and

h=4
