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.

I'm extremly bad at setting up systems of equations. Please help. :(
So 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
\(\sf 3x = 2x + 5\)
That'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.
