    Let s represent the cost of a shirt in $
    Let p represent the cost of a pair of slacks in $
    Patricia’s cost: 5s + 8p = 345
    John’s cost: 7s + 3p = 237
    Solve the above system for s and p, use any method you wish
    s = 21 and p = 30
    Check this result in the original equation(s), I did!
    So a shirt cost $21 and a pair of slacks cost $30
    GL you will need it!
