Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Let the incomes be x and y

The two equation are:

x+y = 28,000

x=y+2000

Substituting second equation in the first we get

y+2000+y = 28000

2y+2000 = 28000

2y= 28,000-2,000 = 26,000

y = 26,000/2 = 13,000


Hence x= 13000+2000 = 15,000

The smaller income is $13,000

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
