Attention: People good at Algebra
Problem I'm dealing with at the moment:
Kristin and her sister Alison both want to buy the same bicycle. Kristin needs $73 more to afford the bike and Allison needs $65 more. If they combine their money, they will have just enough to buy one bicycle that they could share. What is the cost of the bicycle?
All help appreciated! ...for the record I'm pretty good at math, I just hate word problems
