    Answer:

    Pedro’s base hits was 1,482 and Ricky’s base hits was 1,204

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let

    x —-> Pedro’s base hits

    y —-> Ricky’s base hits

    we know that

    Pedro and Ricky got 2686 base hits last season

    so

    [tex]x+y=2,686[/tex]—–> equation A

    Pedro had 278 more hits than Ricky

    so

    [tex]x=y+278[/tex] —-> equation B

    Solve the system by substitution

    Substitute equation B in equation A

    [tex](y+278)+y=2,686[/tex]

    solve for y

    [tex]2y=2,686-278\\2y=2,408\\y=1,204[/tex]

    Find the value of x

    [tex]x=1,204+278=1,482[/tex]

    therefore

    Pedro’s base hits was 1,482 and Ricky’s base hits was 1,204
