I need help I don't know how to begin the equation

Michael purchased a certain number of share of one stock for a total of $2800. The second stock was selling for $6 less per share . Michael could have bought 6 more shares of the second stock for the same amount of money. How many shares of the first stock did Michael purchase? How much did each share cost?
