    You will get help much faster if you type in the name of the subject. Typing in I need help means you hope someone reads the question AND has the knowledge to answer your question. I just clicked on the question to see what it was.
    Here is how you do the problem,
    Let x = number of months
    The money deposited to A will be 15*x at the rate of $15/month.
    The money deposited to B will be 10x at the rate of $10/month.
    The account for A in x months will be 200+15x.
    The account for B in x months will be 300+10x. The problem states that at this time both accounts will be the same; therefore, set them equal to each other.
    200 + 15x = 300 + 10x
    Solve for x (I find 20 months).
    How much will they be worth in 20 months?
    200 + 15*20 = ?
    300 + 10*20 = ?
