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

Sep 3rd, 2015

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
