Answer:2.50(10) + 3x = 135.97, x = 38.66

Step-by-step explanation:This should be pretty simple.

Basically, we know that he bought 10 pairs for 2.50 so that’s $25 right there.

Our total is 135.97 though-

so here, we take our total from the right side of the equation, and subtract 25 from that.

135.97 – 25 = 115.97

Since he bought three pairs, divide it by 3.

115.97 / 3 = 38.66

One pair of shoes costs $38.66 – hope this helps!
