    The cost of video game system is $ 420 and the cost of  game is $ 140

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given,

    The total cost of the video game system and the several game = $ 560

    Let, the cost of several game = x and

    The cost of video game system = 3x

    To find the cost of the system and the games

    According to the problem,

    x + 3x = 560

    or, 4x = 560

    or, x = \frac{560}{4}

    = $ 140

    Hence, the cost of several game = $ 140 and

    The cost of video game system = $ 3 × 140 = $ 420
