Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0P + L = 11 P = L + 10 (L+10)+L = 11 2L + 10 = 11 2L = 1110 2L = 1 Lid = 1 dollar, Pot = 10 dollars....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, I used the information given to construct a logical model. We know the price of the pot(P) and lid(L) added together is $11. P + L = $11 We know that the P is equal to the lid(L) + $10; so replace P with L + 10 (L + 10) + L = 11 Combine like terms ; L + L = 2L 2L + 10 = 11 subtract (10) from both sides to keep everything in balance and to get the Ls by them self. 2L +1010 = 1110 2L = 1 to find what L equals, we divide each side by (2) to keep them balanced. (2L)/2 = 1/2 L = 1/2 of a dollar. I know that .50 is exactly onehalf of a dollar :) Since I know the price of a lid(L) I can now add $10 to it to determine the price of the pot(P). P = .50 + 10.00 = 10.50.
