Mei's salary starts at $16,000 per year with annual raises of $1500. Janet's starting salary is $19,300 with annual raises of $950. After how many years will the two women be earning the same salary?

16,000 + 1500 Y = 19,300 + 950 Y

Solve for Y, the number of years required.

3300 = 550 Y

One more step. It's all yours.
