Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So we want to see when their money (these equations) will be equal y = 5x + 85 y = 20x + 40 Since both will have an equal amount of money... 'y' will be equal...and if 'y' is equal then these equations are equal...so \[\large 5x + 85 = 20x + 40\] And just use algebra to solve for 'x'
