Cindy wants to paint her office. She can buy three cans of the same-priced paint
and three identical brushes for $21, or she can buy four cans of the same paint
and one brush for $22. How much does a can of paint cost?

Set up a system of equations. Let x = the price of a can of paint and y = the price of a brush.
3x + 3y = 21
4x + y = 22
Does this make sense?
