mei salary starts at 16,000 per year with annual raises or 1,500. janet salary is 19,300 with annual raise of $950.00. After how many years will the two women be earning the same salary?
y = years
The equations are equal because it says " how many years will the two women be earning the SAME salary "
16,000 + 1,500y = 19,300 + 950y •Solve(:
16,000 + 550y = 19,300
550y = 3,300 •Divide
y = 6
It will take 6 years for the two women to earn the same salary.
