Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1436397087076:dw which equation is true? to find the two different prices. it gives u the more expensive price options, so u would subtract 3 from each. then take the new number and add it to the original number. which ever equation equals 25 is ur answer. (the equation that = 25's original number is the answer) tell me what u think/know the answer is .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's represent scarf as "s". So \[\large s+(s+3)=25\]\[\large (s+s)=253\]\[\large 2s=22\]\[\large s=11\] So the scarf cost 11 dollars. Substitute that into the original equation to get \[\large s+(s+3)=25 \\\large 11+(11+3)=25\]
