Derrick and Sarah work at the same company. Derrick's salary is $20 per hour, whereas Sarah's salary is $40 per hour. Because Derrick works in sales, he can expect a $3/hour raise every month, while Sarah can only expect a raise of 50 cents. How long will it take until they are paid the same amount per hour?
Let x = # of months until the salaries are equal Let y = the amount of money they earn y = 3x + 20 y = .5x + 40 3x + 20 = .5x + 40 2.5x = 20 x = 20/2.5 x = 8 months
