Q:
# Mr. Rose spent $63 for a sport jacket and a pair of slacks. If the jacket cost $33 more than the slacks, how much did he pay for each?Which system of equations represents the word problem if j is the jacket price and s is the price of the slacks?j + s = 63 and s - j = 33j + s = 63 and j - s = 33js = 63 andj/s = 33

Accepted Solution

A:

the equation would be j+s=total

we know that the total is 63, and the jacket cost s+33

it is addition and subtraction, so we can cancel the last one. j is more than s, so we would go with your second option, j + s = 63 and j - s = 33.
