A shirt cost $10 and a skirt cost twice as much. Nicole bought 2 more shirts than skirts. She spent $80 altogether. Hoe many blouses did she buy?

    Well, what we know is that blouses (shirts) are $10. Therefore, if skirts cost twice as much they would be $20. Right?

    Okay. So it also says that she bought at least two shirts. So that right there is $20 and she also bought at least 1 skirt so that is $40.

    She bought 4 blouses and two skirts. 10x4=40+2x20=40. 40+40=80
