pants are $2.00 more expensive than shirts. So, the cost of one pair of pants is "x + $2.00".

. Steve buys 3 shirts and 2 pairs of pants for a total of $124.00.

. The total cost of the shirts is 3 * x = 3x dollars.

. The total cost of the pants is 2 * (x + $2.00) = 2x + $4.00 dollars.

The sum of the shirt cost and the pants cost should equal $124.00. So, we have the equation: 3x + (2x + $4.00) = $124.00.

Solving this equation, we get: 5x + $4.00 = $124.00.

. Subtracting $4.00 from both sides, we have: 5x = $120.00.

. Dividing both sides by 5, we get: x = $24.00.

. Now, we can find the cost of one pair of pants by substituting the value of "x" into the expression "x + $2.00". Thus, one pair of pants costs $24.00 + $2.00 = $26.00.
