Mrs. Scott decided that she would spend more no more than $120 to buy a jacket and a skirt.If the price of jacket was $20 more than 3 times the price of the skirt.Find the highest possible price of the skirt. I have the answer but they add another variable which is never explained and Im confused.

J = 20 = 3s
20 + 3s + s < 120
20 + 4s <= 120
-20 - 20
4s <= 100
s = 25
