$85 total, the glove costs 75$, so 85-75=10...the ball costs $10, hope that helps! :)

the correct response?

how did you get that answer?
anonymous

sorry I messed that up, haha

k, well if one costs $10 and the other costs $75, the the glove costs $85, so then $85 +10 would equal 95, not 85

k, well i figured it out, thanks for the effort anyways. im not fanning you btw

oh, sorry, I misread the problem. But in any case, you understnad what you're doing, which is great!

I don't care, sorry for not reading it right

(: thanks anyway!

can you put it in an equation to demonstrate how the anser is 5? please?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'll try...g=cost of glove....b=cost of ball..... (1) g + b=85 (2) g=75 + b ....then you plug 2 into 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
Let x be the cost of the ball and y be the cost of the glove. x+y=85 x+75=y Solve for x
anonymous
  • anonymous
how would that equal 5?
anonymous
  • anonymous
75 + b +b=85..... 2b=85-75.... b=10/2.... b=5
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok, but why did we have 2b?
anonymous
  • anonymous
b + b = 2b...it's like saying 1b+ 1b
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya ya, but why didwe get 2b, i mean wy didwe ad b + b
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
it makes mathematical sense to represent the information that way
anonymous
  • anonymous
by the way, g=75+b is an equation that means "the glove costs $75 more than the ball"
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok thank you sooo much, i'm sorry about condesending you earlier, :DDDD
anonymous
  • anonymous
No problem, glad I could help this time haha
