# Can this question form simultaneous equations or not?

Not too sure if it can or not.

Mary bought some clothes at the local fair. She bought three times as many tops as shorts. The tops, T, were \$4 each. The shorts, S, were \$6 each. She spent \$180 altogether.
Form some equations and solve these to find out how many tops Mary bought.

@taehyun,
Tops = 3 x shorts
4 x Tops + 6 x shorts = 180
