You figure that you will buy property many times and you endeavor to work out a formula that will tell you the price of the land and the price of the buildings any time.
So suppose the price for the land and buildings combined is S (for "sum") and the land costs D (for "difference") more than the buildings.
Then the price of the buildings is ___ dollars and the price of the land is ____ dollars.
How would i create formulas for this in terms of S and D?
Buildings = S - D dollars
Land = D dollars
