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.
