Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what I did was to set the amount of money due the same and find the number of weeks consider 2 functions y1 = 30025 x and y2 = 55075 x when y1 = y2 then 30025 x = 550 75 x and solve for x the number of weeks = 5 substitute x = 5 and find the value for y, the amount of money due
