A theater group made appearances in two cities. The hotel charge before tax in the second city was $1000 higher than in the first. The tax in the first city was 4% , and the tax in the second city was 7% . The total hotel tax paid for the two cities was $455 . How much was the hotel charge in each city before tax?

Please help me follow the steps. I understand that you have to put the two cities in equations and solve but the numbers confuse me. the total of the two cities and the number earned.
