A bat and ball cost a dollar and ten cents. The bat costs a dollar more than the ball. How much does the ball cost? If you know the answer type it! lets see who gets it right!
ball =x, bat = x +1, therefore x+(x+1) = $1.10
following up on ace: cost of a ball is x: x+x+1= 1.10 2x+1= 1.10 2x= 0.10 x= 0.05 cost of a ball is 0.05 (1 nickel) the cost of a bat is 1+x= 1 +0.05= 1.05 cost of a ball is $0.05 cost of a bat is $1.05 cost of a bat and a ball is $1.10 I would say ace is correct, and left it to you to show the details.
