    Algebra 1 problem at best.  Two equations with two unknowns.  The rest is up to you. 

    R + K = 28

    R - K = 4

    That was dumb. They could have got a couple illegals outside of Home Depot to do it for a like 20 bucks

      Mine has a fireman's pole no joke.  I built it when my daughter was younger. Waiting for grandkids.

    x + (x+4) = 28

    x= Karl's hours worked.
