1. ## Simultaneous Equations Help

I need help with this sum, I came up with one statement but cant figure the second statement out.

Here is the sum:

Sally bought dresses and Hand Bags. The Dresses cost $65 and the hand bags cost$26 each. The total number of items was 11 and in total she spent \$598. How many dresses and how many hand bangs did she buy?

I think the answer should go like this:

Let b be the number of dresses bought.
Let h be then number of handbags bought.

First Statement:
d + h = 11

I cant come up with a proper second statement though, and Im not quite sure whether my first statement is correct either. Any help would be much appreciated.

2. I think I got both statements,

d+h= 11
65d+26h=598
