Sharon started with $42 in her bank account and
added $16 per week. Neil started out $70 in debt and deposited $30 per week. Determine how many weeks it will take them to have saved the same amount of money.


  1. Answer:
    8 weeks
    Step-by-step explanation:
    The two equations I got from this are y=16x+42 and y=-70+30x
    I graphed both equations online to see what the intersection would be the intersection between both equations is (8,170). I think that this means that in 8 weeks they would both be at 170 dollars, so I think that it will take them 8 weeks to have the same amount of money saved
    (if wrong, im sorry..)
