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...

    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
