Rachel can make 3 bracelets in an hour. Oliver can make only 2 bracelets in an hour, but he already has completed 5 bracelets. Explain to Rachel how she can use a system of equations to determine when she will have the same number of bracelets as oliver.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you have two rates, rachel's rate = 3x (x is the number of hours passed) oliver's rate = 2x but oliver already started with 5 so rachel's rate = oliver's rate +5 \(\sf 3x = 2x + 5\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's not a system of equations. For a system of equations, you need at least 2 equations in two variables. The correct setup would be something like y = 3x y = 2x + 5 as the initial setup.
