## Alg. 2 prob

On Friday, the With-It Clothiers sold some jeasn at \$25 a pair and some shirts at \$18 each. Receipts for the day totaled \$441. On Saturday the store priced both items at \$20, sold exactly the same number of each item, and had receipts of \$420. How many pairs of jeans and how many shirts were sold each day?

This is how far I got:

Jeans = J
Shirts: = S
J = \$25
S = \$18
Total of money: \$44

1st day
25J+18S=441

2nd day
20J+20S=420

Now you have two equations with 2 unknowns.
