e) The second home has 1000 square feet less than twice the square feet of the first home. Write an equation that illustrates this situation using x and y to denote home #1 and home #2, respectively.

This is my answer to the first half

y=x-1000

However, I cannot figure out the second equation...can you help me?

f) Together, both homes have 4,400 square feet. Write an equation that illustrates this situation using the same variables you used in part e.
