    The equation would be 4y=5x       4(x+15)=5x             x+15=y

    let x be the amount that Shelia deposits each time

    let y represent the amount that Sherri deposits each time

    4(x+15)=5x

    4x+60=5x

    -4x       -4x

    60=x

    Check:

    x+15=y                  60+15=y                        y=75

    4(75)=5(60)

    300=300

    Shelia deposits $60 each time.
