1. Let the number of hits by Sanchez be S and the number of hits by Washington be W .

2. According to the problem, Washington had 14 more hits than Sanchez:

W = S + 14

3. The combined total number of hits is 262:

S + W = 262

4. Substitute the expression forW from step 2 into step 3:

S + (S + 14) = 262

5. Simplify the equation:

2S + 14 = 262

6. Subtract 14 from both sides:

2S = 248

7. Divide by 2:

S = 124

8. Using the value ofS , find W :

W = S + 14 = 124 + 14 = 138

\text{Washington} = 138 \text{ hits}, \quad \text{Sanchez} = 124 \text{ hits}
