cost of one pair of gloves is G and cost of one hat is H. In math, what this is telling us is:

2G + 4H = 43 and

2G + 2H = 30 . The difference between the first and the second is 2H = 13. In other words, Cody bought two more hats than Tori and it cost him $13 more. That means each hat is $6.50 . Plugging that (H = 6.5) back in to the second equation gives 2G + 2*6.5 = 30. Solving for G: 2G = 30 - 2*6.5 = 17 . Dividing both sides by 2 we have G = 17/2 = 8.5. So a pair of gloves is $8.50 and a hat $6.50
