Harry brought a pair of walking boots and a pair of laces for 41 pounds. The boots cost 40 pounds more than the laces, what was the price of each?

Use the formula x + (x + 40) = 41 to get the answer, where x is the variable for the lace.

Solution: Solve for x by simplifying both sides of the equation then isolating the variable.
