Chris paid $36 for 3 tank tops and 2 t-shirts. A t-shirt cost 3 times as much as a tank top. How much did Chris pay for the 2 t-shirts.

This is easy enough to figure out in my head working backwards (Tank top costs $4, t-shirt costs $12, therefore 2 T-shirts costs $24) but I am having a hard time creating the equation and order of operations. Help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much... the issue I was having was I didn't create two variables, I simply used a single variable for the tank top and made the tshirt the same variable x3... makes much more sense now.
