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?

150 + 2W  = 195 - 1W     where W is the number of weeks it will take before they weigh the same

 

Add 1W to both sides......subtract 150 from both sides

 

3W   = 45    divide both sides by 3

 

W  = 15 weeks

 

 

cool cool cool
