A green flag costs 10 times the price of a blue flag. A red flag costs half as much as a green flag. An orange flag costs \$10 less than a red flag. If all four different colors of flags cost a total of \$200, what is the cost of the orange flag?

Let denote the prices of the flags as g (green), r(red), o(orange) and b(blue).
Then the equations are:
It is compehensible ? Can you solve this linear equation system ?
Let cost of Blue Flag be $x$ .Cost of green flag is $10x$ .Cost of red flag is $5x$.Cost of orange flag is $5x - 10$ ...
I hope you can think little bit here on what to do next ..
