A bottle and a cork together cost \$1.00. The bottle cost 90 cents more than the cork. How much does the cork cost?

Bottle - 95 cents
Cork - 5 cents

How would you write an equation for this?

• algebra 1 -

let the cost of the cork be x cents
then the cost of the bottle is x+90 cents

equation: x + x+90 = 100

Thank you sooooo much!!!

C is the cost of cork.
90+C + C=100

• algebra 1 -

thank you!
