ernesto spent a total of 64$ for a pair of jeans and a shirt. the jeans cost 6$ more than the shirt. how much did the jeans cost?

  • math -

    Shirt cost = S
    Jeans cost = J = S + 6
    S + S + 6 = 2S + 6 = 64
    2S = 58
    S = 29
    J = 35

  • math -

    Let x equal the cost of the jeans.

    x + x - 6 = 64
    2x - 6 + 6 = 64 + 6
    2x = 70
    x = 35

    To check:
    35 + 29 = 64
