A Shirt And A Tie Together Cost $50. The Shirt Costs $30 More Than The Tie. What Is The Cost Of The Shirt?

Let’s denote the cost* of the tie as T dollars.*

According to the problem:

– The cost of the shirt is $30 more than the cost of the tie, so the cost of the shirt is T + 30 dollars.

– The combined cost of the shirt and the tie is $50.

We can set up the equation as follows:

T + T + 30 = 50

Simplify and solve for T :

2T + 30 = 50

2T = 50 – 30

2T = 20

T = 10

So, the cost of the tie is $10.

The cost of the shirt is:

T + 30 = 10 + 30 = 40

Therefore, the **cost of the shirt is $40.**
