Melinda earns $152 less per week then Barbra. The combined income of these two people is $400 per week. How much per week does each person earn.
I need some help on this problem If im correct I multiply 2 times $152 then divide by 400?
Let B = Barbra
B + B - 152 = 400
2B = 552
B = 276
So Barbara earns $276 and that's the answer? I also need to find out how much melinda earns. So I assume I then subtract 276 from 400?
My answer for melinda she earns $124 after you subtract 276 from 152 because 124 +152=276
