**candice bought 3 shirts.**

each shirt cost the same amount and was discounted by $3.66.

candice paid a total of $62.31 before tax.how much did each shirt cost before the discount?

**Answer**

discount per shirt=3.66 so therefor 3x=3 times original cost per shirt discount means minus 3x-3(3.66) since 3 discounts since 1 discount per shirt she paid 62.31 after discount so 3x-3(3.66)=62.31 solve for x which is cost per shirt orinilally 3x-3(3.66)=62.31 divde both sides by 3 x-3.66=20.77 add 3.66 to both sides x=24.43 cost per shirt was $24.43
