Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0$85 total, the glove costs 75$, so 8575=10...the ball costs $10, hope that helps! :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0k, well if one costs $10 and the other costs $75, the the glove costs $85, so then $85 +10 would equal 95, not 85

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you put it in an equation to demonstrate how the anser is 5? please?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll try...g=cost of glove....b=cost of ball..... (1) g + b=85 (2) g=75 + b ....then you plug 2 into 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let x be the cost of the ball and y be the cost of the glove. x+y=85 x+75=y Solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.075 + b +b=85..... 2b=8575.... b=10/2.... b=5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, but why did we have 2b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0b + b = 2b...it's like saying 1b+ 1b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya ya, but why didwe get 2b, i mean wy didwe ad b + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok we established that g=75+b, so we plugged that into the g+b=85 equation...that gave us (75+b)+b=85 ... if you have the cost of one glove + the cost of one glove you have $5 + $5, which equals 10$... 2(b) will also give us 10 because 2*5=10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it makes mathematical sense to represent the information that way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by the way, g=75+b is an equation that means "the glove costs $75 more than the ball"
