At a sale on winter clothing, Cody bought two pairs of gloves and four hats for $43.00. Tori bought two pairs of gloves and two hats for $30.00. Find the cost of each.
First, let's define our variables. g=gloves and h=hats
Here's what we know:
Let's solve this system of equations by elimination. To do that, let's eliminate the "g" variable by multiplying the bottom equation by -1.
Add the equations together.
Solve for h by dividing by 2.
When you have your answer for "h" put that answer into one of the two original equations to solve for "g"
