I don't understand Pierre owned a half interest statement.

So far I have x for dave amount and x+2000 for steven amount

If Pierre owned half, he invested $26,000

Steve putting up $2000 more than Dave leads too S = D + 2000.

Since S + D = =26,000 and

......S - D = 2000

2S = 28,000 making S = $14,000 and D = $12,000
