 Question 54871: Hello, I could reeally use some help with this one. Thanks! The price of one brand of athletic shoes is \$5 more than another brand. If the prices of the two pairs of shoes add to \$230, how much does each pair cost?Answer by tutorcecilia(2152)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Shoe A=(Shoe B + \$5.00) Shoe B = (B) . Shoe A + Shoe B =\$230 (B+5)+(B)=230 [Simplify] B+5+B=230 [Solve for B] 2B+5=230 2B=230-5 2B=225 B=\$112.50 (Cost of Shoe B) . Therefore Shoe A = (Shoe B + \$5)=112.50+5=\$117.50 (Cost of Shoe A) \$112.50+\$117.50=\$230.00
