You spend $2.50 on a bat and a baseball, the bat cost one dollar more than the ball. How much does each one of them cost?
$1.75 and $0.75 = $2.50
We know that the bat and baseball equal $2.50 together. We also know that the bat costs one dollar more than the ball. Let's let the baseball = X. We are given that that the bat equals one dollar more than the baseball. We know that the bat must equal X (the baseball) + 1. Therefore, the bat equals X+1. We now use all the givens to determine the price of each. X + (X+1) = 2.50 ==> 2x + 1 = 2.50 ==> 2x = 1.50 ==> x = .75 We now know that the baseball (x) is equal to .75. Since the bat is one dollar more, it's simply 1 + .75, or $1.75 for the bat and $.75 for the baseball.
