    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let’s say the circulation for newspaper 1 is X. Then the circulation for newspaper 2 is smaller, by 382, so we can call it (X – 382). It’s really 382,000 of course, but we can leave off the extra zeros for now.

    Anyway, the total of both would have to be X + (X – 382) = 2492. This simplifies to:

     

    2X – 382 = 2492

     

    If you can solve that equation, you’ll have the circulation for newspaper 1, in thousands.

     

    Does this give you a push in the right direction?
