Answer:$450

Step-by-step explanation:We know that the washer costs $51 more dollars than the dryer.

The washer costs x+51

The dryer costs x

So to simplify this we can do this equation:

2x+51=951

Substitute and simply the equation, and you should get this:

2x=900

x=450

Hope this helps! 🙂

$900

Step-by-step explanation:if the washer and dryer combined equal 951 and the washer itself equals 51 then all you need to do is subtract to get the cost of the dryer alone.
