## Answers ( No )

DERIVAR :

(2x – 1) / √ x2 + 1

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.
