    Post Withdrawing and Depositing

    You have $22 in your bank account and deposit $11.50 each week. At the same time your cousin has $218 but withdrawing $13 each week.

    a. When will your accounts have the same balance?

    b. How much money will each of you have after 12 weeks?

    Hi amber,

    Let n = number of weeks.

    a. 22 + 11.50n = 218 - 13n

    Solve for n

    b. You: 22 + 11.50(12) =
    Cousin: 218 - 13(12) =
