2. Okay so if we're looking for the cost of ONE uniform, we have to figure out the amount of money did NOT go to the uniforms.
If each player gets a basketball at \$9 each... \$9 x 15 players = \$135 on basketballs.
\$420 total - \$135 basketballs = \$285 all uniforms
Since we only need one uniform, we divide the remaining balance by the number of players:
\$285 / 15 players = \$19 per uniform
