  • Math -

    what situation? How much each has in savings? How much is left over after saving? How much more one has than the other at some time? when their savings are equal?

    If you want some help, you need to present a question.

  • Math -

    Hector cash = 450 + 20 t
    Tim cash = 1200 - 30 t

    Are you interested in how many weeks until they are equal?
    If so
    1200 - 30 t = 450 + 20 t

    50 t = 1200-450

    t = 15 weeks
