**Problem 1 M = Y – 32.8 M + Y = 266.6 M = (149.7) – 32.8**

In 2003, the New York Yankees and the New York Mets had the highest payrolls in major league baseball. The Mets’ payroll was $32.8 million less than the Yankees. If the two payrolls totaled $266.6 million, what was the payroll of each team? M = Y – 32.8 M = (149.7) – 32.8 M = 116.9 M + Y = 266.6 (Y – 32.8) + Y = 266.6 2Y – 32.8 = 266.6 2Y = 299.4 Y = 149.7 Mets = $116.9 million Yankees = $149.7 million
