During a recent campaign, a candidate purchased two television commercials and one radio commercial for $29,250 in September. In October, she spent $62,250 on four television ads and three radio ads. In the equations below, r represents the cost of one radio commercial and t represents the cost of one television commercial.
2t + r = $29,250
4t + 3r + $62,250
What is the cost, in dollars, of one television ad?
**Can someone please show me how to do this? I keep coming up with the wrong answer...

2t = 2550
one TV ad costs $1275
thank you! But do you know how to solve it?
Multiply the first equation by 3
that gives 6t + 3r = 87750
subtract the second equation
that leaves you with 2t = 25500
and you get $12750
I missed a 0 in the first one, sorry
