Ms.Sue is right but math doesn't have one way to calculate something so here how I did my , and I got the same result with Ms. Sue .

2.2m+500=2800

2m=2300

M=2300/2 ( 2300 divided by 2 )

M= 1150

I hope that's fine with you Ms. Sue

I'm just giving my help !!!

Thanks , Have a great day readers @@@
