<< Mentor Note -- Thread moved from the technical math forums, so no HH Template is shown >> Hey guys, could use some insight here... So this is a basic story problem: "I paid $22.30 for 6 new golf balls and 10 used balls. If each new ball costs $.65 more than a used ball,how much did I pay for each type of ball?" I assumed it was as simple as: 10x+6(x+.65)=22.30 But that is apparently incorrect... I'm banging my head against a wall... maybe the fact that I've been studying for an hour or two straight doesn't help as its psyching me out,but I feel like this is much more difficult then it should be... My mind is blank right now,what am I missing?
