this question makes us realize that we should not be carried away by our skills.......but still focus on the root...........many of us would have indeed thought that $1would have been the answer

I have updated the answer to 1.05.

In future, if you spot any errors with a problem, you can “report” it by selecting the “dot dot dot” menu in the lower right corner. You will get a more timely response that way.

ans 1.05 is right. but question is wrongly framed. too bad.

Cost of (bat + ball = 1.10 $)

Cost of ( bat - ball = 1 $)

```
Add them :
2 bat=2.10$
```

Therefore : cost of bat = 1.05 $

Let the pat=X

and the ball=Y

then : X+Y=1.10

X-Y=1

add the 2 equations

then : 2X=2.10

then X=1.05

bat=1.05

Let the cost of bat be x

So, cost of ball=x-1

x+x-1=1.10,

2x=2.10,

x=1.05.

Take cost of ball to be

x -1, and the cost of the bat to bexx + (x - 1) = 1.10

2x - 1 = 1.10

2x = 2.10

x = $\frac{2.10}{2}$

x = $\boxed{1.05}$
