result #78756  A BAT AND A BALL COST $1.10, IF THE BAT COSTS 1 DOLLAR MORE THAN THE BALL, HOW MUCH DID THE BALL COST?

COMMENTS:
5 cents
Given Eq1: Bt + Bl = 1.10, and given Eq2: Bt = Bl + 1.00 Grouping variables of Eq2: Bt  Bl = 1.00 Adding Eq1 & Eq2: 2Bt = 2.10 Therefore, Bt = 1.05, making Bl = 0.05.
Cathexis, where's the humor in that???? The ball must be made out of snot and feces in order to just be 5 cents.
The algebra said ten cents, but my head says nothing. But I can't trust my head any more. Too many paradoxresolution sitches to number have twisted the old noggin into Moebius string cheese.
Easy peasy
"Given Eq1: Bt + Bl = 1.10, and given Eq2: Bt = Bl + 1.00 Grouping variables of Eq2: Bt  Bl = 1.00 Adding Eq1 & Eq2: 2Bt = 2.10 Therefore, Bt = 1.05, making Bl = 0.05. by Cathexis" Well I knew the answer, but Jesus Christ!
5 cents, so it must be a shitty ball!
Anyone older than 11 can do this...
I hate smart a**es who garble on like cathexis. Maths is megasimple, but such doinks have to make it hard and distant. I am superior to cathexis, because I can communicate the answer to anyone with minimum effort. T = Bat L = Ball T + L = 110 T = 100 + L 100 + L + L =110 2L = 10 L = 5
5c :) nice try
Well I got it wrong, but I understood Cathexis' explanation better: it described the method, which I had completely forgotten.
Yahoo! I got it right!
Here is the formula b=bat a=ball b+a=1.10 a will equal the cost of the bat minus 1.00 so a=b1 sub in formula b+b1=1.10 b+b=.10 2b=.10 b=.05 so bat is 1.05 and ball .05
Voted : 5 cent
price of ball= x price of bat=x+$1.00 x+x+$1.00=$1.10 2x + $1.00=$1.10 2x=$1.10$1.00 2x=0.10 x=0.05
This is a Republican Budget Amendment trick to benefit a manufacterer of the baseball equipment.
