    Answer:

    cost of system is $175 and cost of the games is $525

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let us take the cost of the system to be X.The games cost 3 times as much as the system and are therefore given 3X. The total cost of the system and the games is $700.Therefore,we form the equation 3X+X=$700.Meaning that 4X=$700 and X is equal to $175.The cost of the system is X therefore it is $175 and the cost of the games is 3X and is therefore $525.
