Suppose you purchase 3 shirts and a hat.

The hat costs 19.75 and you spend 56.50 in all.

Each shirt costs 12.25.

56.50 - 19.75 = 36.75 (the amount you paid less the price of the hat)

The three shirts cost 36.75.

Assuming they all cost the same, each one will be:

1/3 x 36.75 = 12.25

x = shirts, y = hat

3x + y = 56.50 .... this is your equation

3x + 19.75 = 56.50

subtract 19.75 from both sides

3x = 36.75

divide both sides by 3

x = 12.25

each shirt costs $12.25

(56.50-19.75)/3=12.25. This assumes all the other shirts were the same brand and style.
