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

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 =13000..........................answer

x+y = 28000

y = 28000 - 13000

=15000

so smaller value is 13000

answer is

SMALLER INCOME = $13000
