P1 +P2= 28 .     ----Equation 1 P1+2= P2 .       -------Equation 2 .          I abbreviate the thousands of $  Using substitution P1+(P1+2)=28 2P1 +2=28 P1=13 then substitute into equation 2 we get 13+2=p2 P2=15 Therefore one is $15,000 and the other is 13,000 Smaller is 13,000!!!

Look at this: 2x+$2,000=$28,000 2x=$28,000-$2,000 2x=$26,000 x=26,000 divided by 2 x=$13,000
