If trees cost $3.00 more than twice the price of bushes and the total spent was $96.00. write the polynomial for what trees cost

Let the cost of  bushes be x

then the cost of trees will be  2x+3

however total cost is $96

hence x+2x+3=$96

          3x=$96+$3

         3x=$93

         x=$31 cost of bushes

       Trees costed 2x+3=$62+$3=$65, the polynomial equation
