    State C spent $28.3 million and State D spent $26.3 million.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Total spent for tourism = $54.6 million

    Let,

    The amount spent by State C = x

    The amount spent by State D = y

    According to given statement;

    x+y = 54.6    Eqn 1

    x=y+2    Eqn 2

    Putting value of x from Eqn 2 in Eqn 1

    (y+2)+y-54.6\\y+2+y=54.6\\2y=54.6-2\\2y=52.6\\

    Dividing both sides by 2

    \frac{2y}{2}=\frac{52.6}{2}\\y=26.3

    Putting y=26.3 in Eqn 2

    x=26.3+2\\x=28.3\\

    State C spent $28.3 million and State D spent $26.3 million.
