Tina is saving to buy a notebook computer. She has two options. The first option is to put $200 away initially and save $10 every month. The second option is to put $100 away initially and save $30 every month. After how many months would Tina save the same amount using either option? How much would she save with either option?

It would be 5 months until the price for the notebook computer would be the same. Here are the steps to solving the problem: 1. Step up the equation, 200 + 10x = 100 + 30x 2. Subtract 100 from both sides and Subtract 10 from both sides, 100 - 200 =  10x + 30x, 100 = 20x 3. Solve for x, 100/20 = 20x/20, x= 5
