A simple maths question: :2cents:

A hammer and a nail costs R1.10 and the hammer costs R1.00 more than the nail. How much does the nail cost?

Let the nail = x. Then the hammer will = x + 100.

Therefore:

x + (x + 100) = 110.
2x = 10
x = 5

I say the nail costs 5 cents and the hammer 105 cents for a total of 110 cents.
