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.
