Step-by-step explanation:

so in this equation we have 2 variables, and we must figure out what those variables mean:

y: “y” is the total amount of money joe has after subtracting his debt from it

x: “x” is the # of months as the cost of each month(30) is placed just before this variable

as y is the total amount of money joe has we need to substitute it for 230 to figure out how long it took for joe to recieve that much money

230=30x-250

480=30x

x=16

it took joe 16 months to get \$230
