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
