Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Rachel 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
