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.

  • Algebra I -

    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
