There are 40 eggs in two baskets altogether. If 5 eggs are transferred from the first to the second basket, the first basket will have 2 more eggs than the second one. How many eggs are in the second basket at first?

x = basket 1

40 - x = basket 2

 

x - 5       =       40-x  +5      + 2

 

2x = 52

x = 26        basket 1        basket 2 = 14  eggs
