Micheal payed 12$ total for the movie. Meaning he spent 12$ on his ticket and his brother's ticket. M= Price of Micheal's Ticket B = Price of brother's ticket. [M+B=12] We know that his brother's ticket is 2$ less so [M-2 = B]. Input equation 2 into equation 1.[M+(M-2)=12]. Solve M=7. Then solve for B. Micheal's brother's ticket should cost $5.
