    3 months

    We can use a systems of equations to find when the values will equal each other, with x equal to months

    Lara’s Puppy: 0.5x+3.5

    Monica’s Puppy: x+2

    Now create an equation for these puppy’s weights to equal each other, and solve:

    0.5x+3.5=x+2

    0.5x=1.5

    x=3
