Together, teammates Pedro and Ricky got base 2690 hits last season. Pedro had 284 more hits than Ricky. How many hits did each player​ have?

so if pedro is p, and ricky is r...

p + r = 2690

p = r + 284

therefore...

 

2r + 284 = 2690

2r = 2406

r = 1203

 

this means that

p = 1203 + 284 = 1487

p = 1487

r = 1203

 

if we double check this...

1487 + 1203 = 2690

Lets say Ricky has x hits, then Pedro has x+284 hits. this means that 2x+284=2690, and simplifying, we get x=1203. Hope this helps.
