The volleyball team at West View High School is comparing T-shirt companies where they can purchase their practice shirts. The two companies, Shirt Box and Just Tees, are represented by this system of equations where x is the number of T-shirts and y is the total cost of the T-shirts.
y = 10.5x
y = 7.5x + 30
How many T-shirts would the volleyball team need to purchase from each company for the total cost to be equal?
For the total cost to be the same for both companies, the volleyball team would need to purchase T-shirts from each company for a total of $ for each company.
