Carter and his cousin are playing a game where they pick up colored sticks. Carter currently has 24 points

and likes to pick up the purple sticks, earning 9 points every turn. His cousin just lost all his points on the

previous turn, and has a strategy to catch up by getting all the pink ones, earning 17 points per turn. In a

certain number of turns, the score will be tied. How many points will they each have? How long will that

take?
