Bill weighs 150 lbs. He wants to gain 2 lbs per week for football season. Jamal runs track. He wants to lose weight so he can run faster. Jamal weighs 195 lbs and wants to lose 1 lb per week. How many weeks will it take before both of them are the same weight?

divide both sides by 3
the 3's on the left cancel out, and the one on the right simplifies to 15
