Here's the equation. You can solve it and get the answer.

x is the number of months passing.

 

115+3x=145-2x 

Solve for x and get your answer

Let x be the number of months that have passed.

 

115 + 3x= 145 - 2x

5x = 30

 

x = 6

 

It takes 6 months for Rupert to weigh the same as Michael.
