Tip & How-To about Clothing Accessories

The price of a good bike shoe varies between 100-300 dollars.You get what you pay for. A good pair of cycling shoes should cost around $100, but they range to $300+. In regards to a Mountain Biking Shoes -As you move up in price, you get features such as stiffer soles, lighter weight, enhanced foot and/or ankle protection, waterproof liners, additional hook-and-loop straps or a buckle-and-ratchet-type strap for an improved fit and foot security. Some shoes also offer removable toe spikes for the ultimate in traction when dismounting your bike.

You will never learn any mathematics if you do not solve math problems. I am here to do your homework. I will however help you set the problem up.

1. Define variables (unknowns).

2. Let t be the price of the tennis shoes

3. Let r be the price of running shoes.

**Translate the text into mathematical expressions**

**A pair of running shoes costs 5$ more than a pair of tennis shoes**

5 $ more ---> ... +5

Cost of a pair of running shoes**(r) =** cost of a pair of tennis shoes **(t) +5**

So the first statement can be expressed as** r=t+5**

The total cost of both** ------> **Sum of the costs** r+t**

**The total cost of both is 115 $ ------> r+t=115**

Now you have a system of two linear equations in two unknowns

**( r=t+5**

**)**

**(r+t=115**

There are a few methods to solve the system (comparison, substitution, or combination/addition/elimination). I gave the 3 possible names for the third methods.

Choose a method and solve the system to find t and r.

Note: Although all three methods, if carried out correctly, will give you the same solution**(t,r)**, one of them should be preferred. **It is worthwhile to recognize immediately which method should be favored depending on the system you are dealing with.**

Alright , no problems my friend. I'll explain the basics of cycling shoes, the dynamics of what makes them great and why you might need a pair.Number of things to look for when buying a biking shoe: 1.A Stiff Sole - The best cycling shoes have a thin, stiff, carbon fiber sole.?The stiffer the sole, the less energy you'll lose between your foot and the pedal. 2.A Good Fit-?You should buy your shoes about a half-size smaller than your normal size to ensure a proper, snug fit. 3.Breathable Materials - ?When your feet start to sweat, it's best to be wearing a shoe that is made with a moisture-wicking material. 4. Easy On, Easy Off?With Velcro and hook and loop strap closures it's very fast and easy to adjust the tightness of a shoe, a necessity when on a long ride with varied terrain.

If you've ever bought a pair of shoes that were comfortable at the shoe store, but discovered a day or so later they were too snug for your feet, and you couldn't return them or didn't want to, there's a low-cost remedy guaranteed to alleviate the problem.The best way to enlarge footgear, and the most economical, is to purchase a stretching solution. Found at most shoe repair shops and retail shoe stores, stretching solutions are sprayed directly to the inside or outside of the shoes (product instructions vary), stretching the shoes within a few minutes while you walk.

The solution follows below:

2B+5=230

2B=230-5

2B=225

B=$112.50 (Cost of Shoe B)

.

Therefore Shoe A = (Shoe B + $5)=112.50+5=$117.50 (Cost of Shoe A)

$112.50+$117.50=$230.00
