Hi,

Can anyone help me with this question?

James bought 3 similar books and 2 T-shirts for \$156.
The 3 books cost as much as the 2 T-shirts.
Find the cost of each items.

The answer is \$26. But I still couldnt figure out why it is \$26.

Thank you very much!

Since the books and the T-shirts costs the same, then they cost \$156/2 = \$78 each (category of items)

And since they are 3 similar books, they will each costs \$78/3 = \$26
