Ok i know ya'll are gonna think i'm stupid for asking this but..... In a certain clothing store, 3 shirts and 5 ties cost $60, and 2 shirts and 3 ties cost $39. What is the cost of each shirt?

s = shirt price t = tie price 3s + 5t = 60 2s + 3t = 39 solve by substitution or elimination

so that means multiply the 5t by 3 and the 3t by negative 5?
