The total amount of items she buys is (x + 3x) = 4x where x is the amount of pants.
If she buys 1 pair of pants, she'll get 4*1 = 4 items. 1 pair of pants and 3 shirts.
So if she buys 32 shirts we know that
4 * x = 32
32/4 = x = 8 pair of pants

C) We don't have the prices ?
C) the prices for Marie's Boutique are as follows:
dresses: $84.50 each
t-shirts $12.50 each
handbags $34.99 each
pants $42.99 each
Okey lets say she buys X items.
Then the amount of pants, P, will be X / 4.
And the amount of t-shirts, T, will be P * 3 (three times as many t-shirts.
Lets say x = 32.
P = 32 / 4 = 8
T = 8 * 3 = 24
The cost will be:
P * $42.99 + T * $12.50
We change T to P * 3
P * $42.99 + (P * 3) * $12.50
For 32 items, P = 8
8 * $42.99 + (8 * 3) * $12.50
Totalt price - the tax.
$643.92 - $643.92 * 0.0725 = $597.24
Or the faster way. 100% - 7.25% = 92.75% = 0.9275
Price after tax = $643.92 * 0.9275 = $597.24
