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
