**Write a system of equations. Let x represent **

Example 3 Write and solve a linear system SOCCER A sports equipment store is having a sale on soccer balls. A soccer coach purchases 10 soccer balls and 2 soccer ball bags for $155. Another soccer coach purchases 12 soccer balls and 3 soccer ball bags for $189. Find the cost of a soccer ball and the cost of a soccer ball bag. SOLUTION Write a system of equations. Let x represent the cost of a soccer ball, and let y represent the cost of a soccer ball bag. STEP 1

**Equation 1: Purchase by first soccer coach**

Example 3 Write and solve a linear system Equation 1: Purchase by first soccer coach x y • + = Equation 2: Purchase by second soccer coach x y • + =

3
**STEP 2 Multiply Equation 1 by 3 and Equation 2 by 2 **

Example 3 Write and solve a linear system STEP 2 Multiply Equation 1 by 3 and Equation 2 by 2 so that the coefficient of y in each equation is the least common multiple of 3 and 2, or 6. 10x y + = 12x y 30x y 24x y 3 2 STEP 3 Subtract the equations. 6x = STEP 4 Solve for x. x =

**STEP 5 Substitute 14.5 for x in either of the original **

Example 3 Write and solve a linear system STEP 5 Substitute 14.5 for x in either of the original equations and solve for y. Write Equation 1. 10x y + = Substitute 14.5 for x. y + = ( ) 14.5 Solve for y. y = ANSWER A soccer ball costs $14.50, and a soccer ball bag costs $5.
