3 s + 19•75 = 56•50
3s = 36•75
s = 12•25
Each shirt will cost 12•25

56.50  19.75 = 36.75 (the amount you paid less the price of the hat)
The three shirts cost 36.75.
Assuming they all cost the same, each one will be:
1/3 x 36.75 = 12.25

x = shirts, y = hat
3x + y = 56.50 .... this is your equation
3x + 19.75 = 56.50
subtract 19.75 from both sides
3x = 36.75
divide both sides by 3
x = 12.25
each shirt costs $12.25

(56.5019.75)/3=12.25. This assumes all the other shirts were the same brand and style.
