    Each shirt of the same type cost: (56.50-19.75)/3 = 12.25

    Suppose you purchase 3 shirts and a hat.

    The hat costs 19.75 and you spend 56.50 in all.

    Each shirt costs 12.25.

    -

    3 s + 19•75 = 56•50

    3s = 36•75

    s = 12•25

    Each shirt will cost 12•25

    56.50 - 19.75 = 36.75 (the amount you paid less the price of the hat)

    The three shirts cost 36.75.

    Assuming they all cost the same, each one will be:

    1/3 x 36.75 = 12.25

    x = shirts, y = hat

    3x + y = 56.50  .... this is your equation

    3x + 19.75 = 56.50

    subtract 19.75 from both sides

    3x = 36.75

    divide both sides by 3

    x = 12.25

    each shirt costs $12.25

    [ 56.5 - 19.75 ] / 3 dollars for each shirt

    (56.50-19.75)/3=12.25. This assumes all the other shirts were the same brand and style.

    Total cost of the three shirts is:

    56.50-19.75

    AVERAGE price of the three shirts is:

    (56.50-19.75)/3

    There is no way to know what EACH shirt costs.
