A can of paint and a paint brush cost a total of $35. If the can of paint costs $30 more than the paint brush, how much does the paint brush cost?

  • math -

    35 - 30 = ?

  • math -

    let the brush cost b dollars
    then the paint costs b+30 dollars
    together, they cost 35 dollars:

    b + b+30 = 35
    2b = 5
    b = 2.50

    brush: $2.50
    paint: $32.50

  • math -- oops -

    Thanks, Steve. You're right.

    I was wrong.
