 You have a bat and a ball. The bat is 1 dollar more than the ball and they both add up to 1.50. How much are each?10 Answers1.25 and 0.25Why not 1.50 and 0.00 if question does not place any restrictions on values for bat and ball.Why not \$1.00 for bat and \$.50 for the ballShow More Responses1.25 for the bat and .25 for the ball... You could not value the bat at 1.50 or 1.00, because they are not equal to 1 dollar more than the ball.1.25 for the bat and .25 for the ball... You could not value the bat at 1.50 or 1.00, because they are not equal to 1 dollar more than the ball.Are you guys serious? The ball is \$1 more!!! 1.50 and 0 would be \$1.50 more!! Do not apply.I knew there would be at least a couple who said 1 and .50 ... lol.It's 1.25 and .25 . The price of the bat has to be a dollar more than the price of the bat . If the ball is .50 cents then the bat would be 1.50 . Meaning that in total it would be 2 dollars . Now as for the bat being 1.50 and the ball being 0.00 . The bat has to be a dollar more than the ball. A dollar more than 0.00 is 1.00 . So the ball and the bat together would only be 1.00. When the ball is .25 , the bat would be priced at 1.25. When you add the ball and the bat together (1.25 + .25) the total is 1.50 .ball costs x and bat costs x+1.the adds up x+(x+1)=1.5 so 2x=0.5 and x=0.25 so ball costs 0.25 and bat cost x+1 which is 1+0.25=1.25\$1:25 for the bat, and \$0.25 for the ball.
