Damn, she likes clothes.
If a is the cost of shirts and b is the cost of jeans:\[4a+3b=109.85\]\[6a+b=94.95\]You can just solve these equations simultaneously to get the answer.
or write \[b=94.95-6a\] and substitute. either way

That is solving them simultaneously.
But do I want to substitute for b (cost of jeans) if i'm trying to find the cost of the jeans? Shouldn't i subsitute for a ?
Yes, but sometimes its easier to find b first and then find a.
