During the National Football Leagues 1999 season, Troy Aikman the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, earned $0.467 million more than Deion Sanders, the Cowboys corner-back. Together they cost the Cowboys $12.867 million. How much did each player make?

Let the earnings of Troy Aikman be T and that of Deion Sanders br D in millions

T = 0.467 + D

T + D =12.867

Substituting the value of T in the 2nd equation, we get

0.467 + D + D =12.867

      2D =12.867 - 0.467

           = 12.4

So D = 12.4/2

           =6.2 million

so T = 12.867 - 6.2

          = 6.667 million

         Please let me know if you have any other questions and best me if you are satisfactory.
