Let the rent your roommate pays is "n". Then your rent is $50 more so it will be "n + 50".

Total rent = 1327.47

(Rent paid by your roommate) + (Rent Paid by you) = (Total Rent)

So

n + n + 50 = 1327.47

2n + 50 = 1327.47

2n = 1327.47 - 50

2n = 1277.47

n = 1277.47/2

n = $ 638.735 (Rent paid by your roommate)

n + 50 = 638.735 + 50 = $ 688. 735 (Rent paid by you)

2x + 50= 1327.47

x= 638.735

You pay $688.73 and your roommate pays $638.74.
