Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Katie's money: y = 30x + 20 Pamela's money: y = 20x + 90 set the equations equal to each other, then solve for x. x is the number of weeks it will take for both KAtie and Pamela's money to be the same then, using that value of x, solve for y using either of the equations
