Will and Thomas are collecting baseball cards. Will already has ten baseball cards and plans to collect 5 cards per month. Thomas has twenty baseball cards and plans to collect 3 cards per month. After how many months will Thomas and Will have the same number of baseball cards?

okay we set up and equation.

 

10 + 5m is how many cards will gets, where m is months

20 + 3m is how many cards thomas gets, where m is months.

 

lets see how many months it will take for them to be equal:

10 + 5m = 20+ 3m

5m = 10 +3m

2m = 10

m = 5

it will take 5 months for them to have the same amount of cards.
