Monica and Max Gordon each want to buy a scooter. Monica has already saved $25 and plans to save $5 per week until she can buy the scooter. Max has $16 and plans to save $8 per week. How many weeks will it take Monica and Max to have saved the same amount of money? How much money would they have at that time?

Monica : y=5x+25
Max :y=8x+16
the weeks Monica and Max have saved the same amount of money :
5x+25=8x+16
x=3 weeks
the money they would have at that time : Y=5x+16 when x=3 :y =$40
