Steve and Cara went Christmas shopping and purchased 5 blouses and 4 skirts for relatives. The total cost was \$326.00. Each blouse cost the same amount. The skirts were a different price, but all 4 were purchased at the same price. The prices were not recorded on the sales slip; it only read “5 blouses and 4 skirts… total \$326.00”. Some blouses and skirts did not fit, so Steve and Cara returned 2 blouses and 3 skirts for a credit of \$192.00. How much did they pay for each blouse? How much did they pay for each skirt?Answer by 303795(595)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Using b and s for blouses and skirts respectively. 5b + 4s = 326 2b + 3s = 192 These are the equations you should have used to solve the problem. Hopefully that is enough help. (You should get \$30 in your solution somewhere if you are correct)
