a pair of trousers cost = x = 195 $one shirt costs = x – 50 = 145$

Step-by-step explanation:

• let the cost of trouser be x.
• cost of shirt = (x – 50)
• 2 pairs of trousers cost = 2x
• 3 shirts cost = 3(x – 50)

= 3x- 150

2 trousers and 3 shirts cost = 825

=> 2x + 3x – 150 = 825

=> 5x = 975

x = 195

a pair of trousers cost = x = 195 $a pair of trousers cost = x = 195$ one shirt costs = x – 50 = 145 \$
