TOGETHER , TWO  PEOPLE  EARN \$28,000. ONE EARNS \$2,000 MORE THAN THE OTHER.  HOW MUCH IS SMALLER INCOME?

Sep 3rd, 2015

let  two incomes be x and y

then,

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

so,

x + x +2000 = 28000

2x = 28000 - 2000

x = 26000 / 2

x+y = 28000

y = 28000 - 13000

=15000

so smaller value is 13000

SMALLER INCOME =  \$13000
