I just started the 5th grade and I don't understand one of my math problems.

The problem is Mr. Smith bought 2 similar T-shirts and a belt. He paid \$100 to the cashier and received \$13 in change. Find the cost of each T-shirt. (shouldn't the price of the belt be in the question?)

Yes. Your question doesn't make any sense -- at least for a 5th grader.

Ok, thank you. I will ask my teacher tomorrow if he left part of the question out.

• math -

The price of the belt was definitely omitted from the question, because with it being unknown, you cannot figure the price of the shirts.
