5 cents

by ABC [+]

Given Eq1: Bt + Bl = 1.10,
and given Eq2: Bt = Bl + 1.00

Grouping variables of Eq2: Bt - Bl = 1.00

Adding Eq1 & Eq2: 2Bt = 2.10

Therefore, Bt = 1.05, making Bl = 0.05.

Cathexis, where's the humor in that???? The ball must be made out of snot and feces in order to just be 5 cents.
The algebra said ten cents, but my head says nothing. But I can't trust my head any more. Too many paradox-resolution sitches to number have twisted the old noggin into Moebius string cheese.
Easy peasy

Well I knew the answer, but Jesus Christ!

Anyone older than 11 can do this...
I hate smart a**es who garble on like cathexis. Maths is mega-simple, but such doinks have to make it hard and distant.

I am superior to cathexis, because I can communicate the answer to anyone with minimum effort.

T = Bat
L = Ball

T + L = 110
T = 100 + L

100 + L + L =110
2L = 10
L = 5

5c :) nice try
Well I got it wrong, but I understood Cathexis' explanation better: it described the method, which I had completely forgotten.

Yahoo! I got it right!
Here is the formula
b=bat
a=ball

b+a=1.10

a will equal the cost of the bat minus 1.00 so
a=b-1
sub in formula
b+b-1=1.10
b+b=.10
2b=.10
b=.05

so bat is 1.05 and ball .05

Voted : 5 cent
price of ball= x
price of bat=x+$1.00
x+x+$1.00=$1.10
2x + $1.00=$1.10
2x=$1.10-$1.00
2x=0.10
x=0.05

This is a Republican Budget Amendment trick to benefit a manufacterer of the baseball equipment.
