Hello

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

### A pair of running shoes costs \$5.00 more than a pair of regular tennis shoes. The total cost for both is \$115 Find the price of the regular tennis shoes

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.

### I have a pair of brand new ecco shoes. Finally convinced my grade 12 daughter to pair the price and buy well made shoes. They are a purple leather lace up shoes. They make airy sounds with ever step....

I've had this problem with my daughter's shoes, and her foot is very narrow. I cut down some generic-brand Dr. Scholl's-type insoles (available at grocery and drugstores) and that did the trick.
1. Get the appropriate sized insoles, and lay the right show on the right insole, and the left shoe on the left insole. Trace them with a pen.
2. Cut out the insole, cutting slightly inside the lines-- the inside of the shoe is smaller than the outside.
3. Work the insoles inside the shoe. Use your fingers to feel around the edges to see where you need to trim them to fit.
4. If it's too long, don't trim all the length off the toe, or all the length off the heel... you'll mess up where the arch curves.
Good luck! I hope it works for you.

### How to Choose Children's Shoes?

When purchasing a first pair for your chaild you should consider the following things: 1.Wait to buy shoes until your child starts to walk.
2.
When it's time for your baby's first pair of shoes, take your well rested, recently fed child to a quality children's shoe store that stock brands such as Stride Rite and Elefanten. The best stores have patient and knowledgeable salespeople who are expert at fitting children's feet.
3.Have the salesperson measure the length and width of both of the child's feet. Many babies have an extra wide foot and may need a special size.
4.
Make sure the shoes aren't too big, which can cause a baby to trip. First shoes should be soft and pliable to let new walkers feel the ground.
