TOGETHER , TWO PEOPLE EARN $28,000. ONE EARNS $2,000 MORE THAN THE OTHER. HOW MUCH IS SMALLER INCOME?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
let two incomes be x and y
TWO PEOPLE EARN $28,000
so, x + y = 28000
ONE EARNS $2,000 MORE THAN THE OTHER
x + 2000 = y
substitute this value of y, y =x + 2000 in x + y = 28000
x + x +2000 = 28000
2x = 28000 - 2000
x = 26000 / 2
x+y = 28000
y = 28000 - 13000
so smaller value is 13000
SMALLER INCOME = $13000
