Dean and Jerry are racing to see who can get his community service hours for scouting completed first. Dean, who has already completed 50 hours, plans to volunteer for 5 hours per week going forward. Jerry hasn't started yet, but plans to dedicate 6 hours per week to his volunteer project from now on. Before too long, the boys will be tied, with the same number of volunteer hours. How many hours will each boy have volunteered by then?

  1. 50 + 5x = 6x
    x = 50
    They would have volunteered 300 hours
