User: In a certain clothing store, 3 shirts and 5 ties cost $60, and 2 shirts and 3 ties cost $39. What is the cost of each shirt?
If s = the cost of a shirt and t = the cost of a tie, which system of equations represents the problem?
3t + 5s = 60 and 2t + 3s = 39
3s + 5t = 60 and 2s + 3t = 39
s + t = 60 and 5s + 8t = 99

Weegy: 3s + 5t = 60 ......(1)
2s + 3t = 39 ......(2)
(1)*2 - (2)*3: t = 3, s = (39 - 3t)/2 = 15
Answer: Shirts cost $15 each, and ties cost $3 each. gagseeker|Points 30|
