Rachel can make 3 bracelets in an hour. Oliver can make only 2 bracelets in an hour, but he already has 5 completed 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. Use complete sentences.

    Rachel can complete 3 bracelets per hour, so the number of bracelets (y) she completes in x number of hours is 3x, so y = 3x Oliver can make 2 per hour, and he already completed 5, so the number of bracelets he completes is 2x + 5 your system of equations is y = 3x y = 2x + 5 you can solve for x to determine the number of hours when Oliver and Rachel have the same # of bracelets
